The Aviation Group encompasses both aviation and maritime practice. We act for ship owner, charterers and lessees, insurers, regulators and P & I clubs. We have advised on ship and aircraft arrests, cargo loss and damage, ship and aircraft sale and purchase, maritime collisions, bills of lading and charter-party claims. Members of the Firm drafted the current Civil Aviation Bill and advice regulators of Nigeria’s aviation industry on the introduction of new regulations and laws that would comply with international standards.
We have also undertaken work in fixed-wing aircraft and helicopter financing, negotiation and conclusion of aircraft lease and lease-purchase agreements, aviation insurance, airline licensing, aircraft registration and other aviation regulatory matters.
