We have a vigorous Litigation Department, headed by a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), the Nigerian equivalent of the Queen’s Counsel. A significant portion of our litigation work is by referral from other firms. Our experience spans the spectrum of judicial review of administrative action, construction disputes, intellectual property disputes, enforcement of human rights, environmental liability claims, insurance claims, debt recovery, landlord and tenant, shipping claims, aviation claims, claims for negligence and general contractual claims.
Our clients are quite varied and we have rights of audience and experience of acting, before all courts and tribunals (except military courts) in Nigeria.
Arbitration/Alternative Dispute Resolution
Our Arbitration and ADR practice comprises partners, associates and outside counsel with experience of acting for international clients in local and international arbitral proceedings. Many of our lawyers are also seasoned arbitrators and qualified as Fellows and Members of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (UK Branch).
