“LI&P provides quality work and is incredibly prompt in response to our issues. They understand the local country processes and we do not hesitate to reach out for their assistance when a situation arises.”
Jason Fowler, Manager of Tax Accounting & Compliance

“Thanks to their legal expertise, knowledge of local regulations and practices and local network, LI&P have helped our company navigate through the complexities and nuances of operating in Equatorial Guinea. From representing the company with various government bodies to advising on the impact of newly enacted regulations or on the differences between legal theory and local practices, LI&P have consistently provided timely and quality service, amongst the best I have experienced in the numerous jurisdictions I worked on. We tried some of LI&P competitors, but were eventually disappointed and came back to LI&P. I am confident that our legal work is in good hands with Sebastien and his team.”
