The team’s experience spans over 30 years and is broad & deep in diversity, quality of work and clients. A big part of our M&A practice involves equity & asset investments, acquisitions, disposals, joint ventures and strategic alliances, hive-outs and corporate restructuring, in relation to which we offer specialised legal due diligence and transactional advisory services. While a considerable amount of the team’s expertise has a cross-border focus, it is grounded in extensive on domestic and cross-border transactional experience, advising corporates, conglomerates, investors, JV partners and financial institutions as well as regulators and a host of other local, regional and international clients across various industries and sectors including oil & gas, banking, finance, telecoms, FMCG, among others. We have one of highest numbers of independently ranked partners in this practice area, in any Nigerian firm.

Our PE department is “singled out for its private equity practice on behalf of both investors and investees”.  We provide tailored advice that is accessible, commercial and consistently sound on principle. All of our partners specialise in diverse areas of commercial law, but 3 of them focus on PE and are recognised in The Lawyer’s 2015 Africa Elite PE Report. We have written extensively on regulatory issues, investments and the regulation of PE for publications such as the IFLR, the Asset Management Law Review & the Emerging Markets Private Equity Association newsletter.
