The mining, oil and gas sectors are at the heart of the African continent’s economy and resources.
We assist our clients, governments or public entities, investors, mining, oil and gas companies, at all stages of the development of their extractive projects, in consulting and litigation including arbitration.
We are involved in the legal, tax and financial structuring of projects, assisting our clients in obtaining mining titles, negotiating mining agreements and oil sharing and production contracts, and in transactions in respect of the related infrastructure required for transport and energy.
We also assist, together with our network of local colleagues and technical and financial experts, our clients in their litigation and more particularly in their international arbitration proceedings in the extractive industry, whether in the context of commercial or investment proceedings, before international institutions (ICC, ICSID, LCIA, CCJA etc.). Some of our lawyers also act as arbitrators in this context.
