LEX Africa is delighted to welcome Clarence Abogados & Asociados as our new member for Equatorial Guinea. This brings the LEX Africa membership to 30 African countries!
The firm is a young, culturally aware and creative full-service Pan-African law firm with an already impressive client base since opening offices in 2017 in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea.
Managing Partner Abraham Abia is widely recognised as one of the leading oil and gas lawyers in Equatorial Guinea. He earned his reputation as a lawyer for one of Africa’s leading law firms and as a regional attorney for the world’s largest oilfield service company.
“By joining LEX Africa, Clarence Abogados & Asociados can now provide its clients with the best of all worlds by continuing to serve them where we currently have offices, while also being able to direct them to top tier lawyers in other jurisdictions on the continent to support their operations locally if they need legal counsel and business advice. We can build on our trusted relationships with our clients by utilising the full resources of this well-established and truly pan-African network,” says Abia.
Chairperson of LEX Africa, Pieter Steyn says “We are delighted that Clarence Abogados & Asociados is joining LEX Africa. This increases our membership to 30 African countries which fits neatly with next year’s 30th anniversary of our formation. We look forward to working with our new colleagues in Equatorial Guinea.”
