We are a corps addressing demanding clients’ major legal challenges.
More broadly, we are a leading Nigerian business law firm founded nearly 30 years ago. We have always had an international outlook. If we may say so, we have a reputation for, and an outstanding record of, carrying out critical, innovative and complex work to the highest standards. We have advised on many significant developments in Nigerian business law.
Our clients are of many nationalities and every size. They range from foremost global multinational enterprises to ambitious, home-grown fledglings. We also serve governments and government-controlled enterprises (we have advised on numerous privatizations) as well as private wealth clients.
We have and maintain complementary contacts in Nigerian business and government circles, and with law firms and lawyers’ organizations in and outside Nigeria. We are a member of Multilaw, a leading global alliance of independent law firms. Multilaw has offices in 100 countries and over 11,000 lawyers.
This firm is a WTS Global member.
We are a full-service law firm with international business experience. We provide our clients with a full range of legal, business advisory and transaction support services with a guarantee of skill, knowledge and professionalism. We do not profess expertise unless we genuinely have it.
Whether engaged to advise on new investments or relationships, or to resolve issues arising from existing transactions, the firm creates value by providing innovative and practical business solutions. We start by understanding the industries in which our clients operate, the peculiarities of each client’s business and the clients’ expectations, as the bases for identifying the solutions that optimise the client’s position within the framework of the law and the operating environment.
