CLG Inaugurates New Office in Congo

Written by on June 20, 2024

The Pan-African legal and business advisory group has established a new office in Pointe Noire, Republic of the Congo, to offer direct legal support for existing and future hydrocarbon projects.

The launch event, held at the Atlantic Hotel on June 19, was attended by Zion Adeoye, CEO of CLG; Strayson Vermeulen, Group CFO & COO; Yves Olivier, Director of CLG Congo; and Oneyka Ojogbo, Deputy Managing Director of CLG.

“CLG strives to be more than just a law firm; we aim to be trusted partners to our clients,” Adeoye emphasized. “We are committed to supporting you in Congo, throughout the Central African region, and across the continent. Our goal is to foster industry growth and ensure that Congo benefits from highly trained and skilled legal professionals to support your business endeavors.”

CLG serves oil and gas companies across 16 African countries, spanning emerging markets such as Namibia and Sierra Leone, as well as established players like Gabon and Nigeria. With its new office in the Republic of the Congo, CLG is well-positioned to offer direct support to energy professionals navigating complex transactions and legalities in the oil, gas, mining, and renewable energy sectors.

“Our firm is renowned for our expertise in corporate tax, employee tax, indirect tax, international tax, and various corporate investment vehicles including mergers and acquisitions,” remarked Oneyka Ojogbo. “Our legal team handles arbitration, mediation, and other dispute resolution mechanisms globally and within Congo. For any legal, tax, or business inquiries across any industry, think CLG.”

Recognized for its proficiency in structuring, financing, and advancing energy projects, CLG’s local presence ensures crucial on-the-ground support, mitigating risks and safeguarding assets.

The Republic of the Congo, with over 1.8 billion barrels of proven oil reserves, plays a pivotal role in Africa’s oil and gas sector and aims to double hydrocarbon production to 500,000 barrels per day. In February 2024, it commenced liquefied natural gas exports through the Congo LNG project, which commercializes gas from the Marine XII concession.

International oil giants like Perenco, Eni, and TotalEnergies are actively exploring offshore and onshore reserves, attracting new players to the market and increasing demand for specialized legal and strategic advisory services.
