We advised a foreign foam and mattress producer (our “client”) in its proposed acquisition of 90% of a Nigerian manufacturer of mattresses and bedding products (the “target”) in conjunction with a foreign law firm.
Our role involved conducting extensive due diligence on the target, advising on corporate and regulatory compliance matters, merger control issues, real estate matters, intellectual property matters and employment law amongst others.
