We are at the forefront of legislative practice in Nigeria. Our Legislative Oversight and Related Governmental Activities Practice (LORGAP) has significant expertise and a track record in a range of matters at both the federal legislature and the legislature of all states in Nigeria. From advising on legislative practice and procedure, monitoring state and national legislative activities to litigating matters concerning the scope and breath of legislative power, our LORGAP practice continues to act for a diverse range of clients before the committees of the National Assembly and at the superior courts in Nigeria.

In this regard, we have represented clients before investigating committees of the National Assembly, made representations on behalf of clients during public hearings on bills and appeared on behalf of clients at the courts in seeking judicial interpretation of the scope of legislative powers.

On the regulatory work side, our LORGAP practice has extensive experience in advising on the relevant administrative law-making processes and draft regulations before regulatory authorities, coupled with our in-depth knowledge of the various regulated economic sectors in Nigeria. Our team has been retained in several high-profile law-making process and rate setting determinations before sector-specific regulators and have advised on a range of issues in connection with these matters.
