When companies operating in Africa seek counsel for their business affairs and litigation, they turn to Centurion Law Group.
For many businesses, complexity of operations and responsibilities of managing employees and assets justify the hiring of a general counsel, but not necessarily the costs of hiring an executive-level salaried employee. As outsourced general counsel, Centurion operates as a member of the client’s management team, rendering advice and servicing the client’s day-to-day legal needs while remaining ready at all times to coordinate, manage, and supervise the client’s unique legal affairs.
We provide outsourced general counsel representation and a full suite of legal services to corporations throughout Africa from our offices in South Africa, Equatorial Guinea, Ghana, Cameroon and Mauritius, as well as through our regional partners in Congo-Brazzaville, Guinea, Nigeria, Tanzania, Uganda and South Sudan.
We cover all facets of corporate law, from major regional business transactions to providing advice and daily counsel to small- and medium-sized businesses.
