The member of the Miranda Alliance in Gabon is Cabinet Nguia full-practice Gabonese law office headquartered in Libreville. Cabinet Nguia is headed by Thierry Nguia, a member of the Gabonese bar who has been assisting clients on commercial, corporate, regulatory, labor and litigation (from the pre-litigation phase to court hearings) matters in Gabon for many years. Cabinet Nguia has recently opened an office in Port-Gentil, the center of the oil industry in Gabon. Thierry Nguia and most of our other colleagues in Gabon are based in Libreville, but are fully available to travel to Port-Gentil on an as-needed basis and make regular visits to the Port-Gentil office.
