First International Law Firm Enters Juba

JUBA, 18 April 2017 [Gurtong]-The partnership, signed on April 10, allows the firms to pool their collective networks, skills and expertise to serve businesses, government and non-governmental organizations in South Sudan.

The agreement also includes training of South Sudanese lawyers using Centurion’s cutting edge legal technology platforms, as well as a joint marketing initiative.

Through this strategic alliance Centurion is the first international law firm to offer a full suite of legal services in South Sudan with local and international lawyers, combining the established local presence and network of Awatkeer with Centurion’s pan-African reach and respected energy practice group.

“We’re excited and proud to enter this new alliance with reputable Pan African brand like Centurion Law Group,” said Anuol Deng Kuoreng, Managing Partner of Awatkeer Law Chambers. “South Sudan’s economic potential is huge, and it’s through partnerships like this that we can advance a pro-business agenda in our young nation. Quality legal services put us on an equal footing with neighboring East African countries and help us attract much needed investment.”

Centurion Law Group is headquartered in Johannesburg, South Africa, with offices in Equatorial Guinea, Cameroon, Mauritius, and Ghana.

Awatkeer Law Chambers was established in 2012 and has 17 lawyers based in Juba, South Sudan. Starting immediately, the firms will work together to bid on viable projects with prospective government, private sector and NGO clients.
