Once again, Centurion Law Group has established its place as a top-tier law firm, ranking as Band 1 for General Business Law for 2017 by Chambers & Partners.
The prestigious report — which ranks law firms in bands from 1-6 (with 1 being the best) — analyzes law firms’ technical legal abilities, professional conduct, client services, commercial astuteness, diligence and commitment. The report covers 185 jurisdictions.
With the aim of being the go-to law group for expert and reliable Africa-wide business knowledge and legal representation, Centurion is fast developing its influence in bustling emerging markets; and leveraging its multinational presence through local offices and partnerships to support key deals in sectors including oil & gas, mining, infrastructure & construction, transportation & logistics, manufacturing and ICT.
A pan-African corporate conglomerate based in Johannesburg, Centurion’s team of attorneys advise international corporations, domestic firms and governments from their offices in South Africa, Equatorial Guinea, Cameroon, Ghana and Mauritius. Centurion’s lawyers are set to present their expertise at the 2017 Africa Oil and Power Conference in Cape Town and the 2017 IEEE Power Africa Conference in Accra. NJ Ayuk, CEO of Centurion, recently delivered a keynote speech at the Germany-Africa Business Forum in Berlin.
Ayuk was also named one of the world’s top energy lawyers by Who’s Who Legal for 2017.
“Companies are beginning to pay attention to the high demand from Africa, and there remains a really great opportunity for businesses to make respectable returns by bringing their expertise and knowledge to the continent,” said Ayuk.
In the Chambers ranking, general business law includes corporate and commercial law, and can also include dispute resolution, banking and finance and sector-specific practice areas.
