Our banking and finance practice is a key area of specialisation for which the firm has consistently earned some of its highest and largest number of commendations from independent ranking publications. The team advises a plethora of clients, and on projects, ranging from the aviation, oil and gas, energy (including power), telecommunications and real estate sectors of the Nigerian economy. We have consistently been retained by leading Nigerian and international banks, private equity funds and other financial institutions, including development finance institutions, governmental, non-governmental and not-for-profit organisations across the globe, to advise on a variety of finance transactions. 

Lauded for its “intelligent approach”, the team is particularly known for its strength in acquisition finance, reserve based lending, project finance and syndicated lending and, also, advises routinely on corporate lending, secured and unsecured lending, asset-based lending, debt capital markets, real estate financings, project and structured finance, and global depository receipts, amongst others. Our expertise includes advising local and international clients on a wide range of cross border transactions, including those in the foregoing space, as well as on a breadth of other banking and finance issues namely: the establishment of a bank in Nigeria, setting up representative offices, regulatory capital, foreign exchange and compliance with regulations of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
