White & Case is a leading global law firm with 39 offices in 26 countries. We are distinguished by the depth and scope of our legal advisory services and unmatched experience in the international arena, particularly in developing or emerging countries.
Our lawyers in Johannesburg, London, Paris, New York, Beijing, Washington, DC, São Paulo and the United Arab Emirates have served clients across Africa, including Francophone and Lusophone Africa, for more than 40 years. In 1995, we were the first foreign law firm to establish an office in South Africa.
We assist clients with the major legal disciplines in regions of the world where our energy sector clients currently do business, and the regions in which they are looking to expand. We have advised on legal issues arising from some of the largest and most complex African project development, project finance, M&A, PE, equity and debt capital markets, construction and dispute resolution matters to date, across the power, oil and gas, infrastructure, metals and mining, and telecommunications industries.
Our energy lawyers are commercial and find goal-orientated solutions to our clients’ challenges. White & Case is currently ranked “Band 1 for Projects and Energy – Africa-wide” by Chambers Global (2016) and has won a series of awards including “Best Law Firm in Africa” by EMEA Finance (2013 - 2015), “Global Law Firm of the Year” by Project Finance International (2015), “Global Legal Adviser of the Year” and “MENA Legal Adviser of the Year” by IJ Global (2015).
