Shearman & Sterling has been active in Africa for over 50 years, advising companies, financial institutions, States and State-owned entities on their projects, corporate transactions and international disputes. We operate in all the key industry sectors in the continent from oil & gas (upstream, midstream and downstream activities) to renewable energy, from mining to telecom, from domestic public utilities to cross border transportation infrastructure.
We have acquired extensive knowledge and understanding of the cultural, political, social and commercial environment of most African countries, and have established a close relationship with local companies, law firms and authorities throughout the continent.
Our practice covers both North and Sub-Saharan Africa, in French, English and Portuguese-speaking countries alike and our lawyers, who practice both common law and civil (including OHADA) law, have been involved in some of the continent’s most strategic and complex projects, including some of the largest and most ambitious IPPs developed in Africa to date.
