How Centurion Works: A Growing and Evolving Practice

The right time, the right place

For foreign investors, African corporations and governments, Centurion Law Group has always played more than one role as a trusted legal advisor, oil and gas industry expert and an advocate for both African and investors’ interests.

We have grown significantly since our early days as a small practice. Today, we are a Pan-African conglomerate with offices serving 35 countries. Our mission has never changed. Centurion Law Group has always been about helping clients achieve their goals on the continent while striving to harness corporate law to build a better future for Africa.

Centurion Law Group continues to do what we do best. We have a proven track record in complex and high-profile cases. Our full-service firm’s comprehensive services include:

  • Arbitration and Commercial Litigation
  • Government Procurements and Contracts
  • Anti-Corruption Advisory
  • Doing Business in Africa
  • Local Regulatory Compliance
  • Tax and Customs
  • Labor and Employment
  • Oil and Gas, Energy and Mining
  • Banking and Finance
  • Corporate Law
  • Energy

We understand that clients come with new expectations and specialized needs that are not always best served by the traditional law firm framework, which is why Centurion Law Group is bringing a highly effective legal services model to Africa; flexible law services.

The newest arm of our law group, Centurion Plus, brings the cost-savings and efficiency of attorneys-on-demand to our broad array of corporate and commercial legal services.

A Legal Hybrid: The Best of Both Worlds

Centurion Law Group and Centurion Plus complement each other. Clients get the benefit of our extensive expertise, resources, and connections—along with a means of accessing top legal talent at an affordable rate. Many clients prefer full-time, in-house legal and business representation; others appreciate the flexibility of choosing the services of an advisor only when they need one.

By combining both options, Centurion builds on its practice of uplifting Africa. Centurion Plus makes excellent legal services affordable to growing indigenous businesses and foreign companies setting up operations here. And we continue to provide excellent career opportunities for lawyers.

More than ever, Africa is now a continent of growth, and our hybrid model is supporting that growth in a practical and meaningful way. Whether your corporation wants to utilize the full resources of our legal practice or just needs a team of experienced attorneys for a one-time project—or both—Centurion will meet your needs.

The Centurion Plus Model: NewLaw at its Best in Africa

Increasing numbers of law firms in North America, Europe and Asia are embracing NewLaw: legal services that utilize innovative, client-focused delivery methods.

That is the model we have brought to Africa in the form of Centurion Plus.

Our pool of carefully vetted, on-demand attorneys are on call to:

  • Handle your projects on short notice
  • Fill your staffing shortfalls
  • Supply specific areas of expertise to your team
  • Augment or serve as your in-house counsel

We will help you build a customized team from our pool of more than 190 exceptionally skilled attorneys and business advisors. They will attend to your legal issue immediately—for considerably less money than you would pay for full-time legal representation.

You control costs: You are not paying for overhead, health benefits, or support for employees you do not need. You are paying for your attorneys’ actual services. Not only that, your legal team is not under pressure to meet a quota of billable hours. Their priority is doing a good job for your company.

You gain efficiency: Your team’s sole responsibility will be the work you assign them, which allows them to work with minimal interruptions and finish projects more quickly. Meanwhile, your staff is freed to focus on other pressing projects.

You work with the cream of the crop: Increasing numbers of premium attorneys are insisting upon a project-based model because of the enhanced work-life balance it enables. Working with Centurion connects you with legal talent you might not have had access to any other way.

You retain control over your projects: With Centurion’s flexible model, not only do you hand-pick the attorneys who will work on your projects but, those attorneys answer directly to you. Your priorities are their priorities.

Your attorneys are backed by Centurion: We rigorously screen the attorneys we provide for projects; in this way you can feel confident in their unsurpassed abilities to represent you. We stand behind them and give them the tools and resources they need to be successful for you.
