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.
