Banking, Corporate Finance, Capital Markets, Insurance & Intellectual Property Group


Banking, Corporate Finance, Capital Markets & Insurance

This Group renders general banking and insurance law advice, banking and insurance regulatory advice and represents clients engaged in capital markets and other corporate finance transactions.

Solicitors from the firm have acted for insurance industry groups in dealings with the apex regulatory body - the National Insurance Commission, and for individual insurance companies, commercial and investment banks, trustees, lenders and borrowers in a wide variety of transactions.

As Nigerian companies are beginning to consider raising funds internationally, we are particularly well placed to support due diligence surveys of such companies on behalf of international lenders and their advisers. We are also well placed to advise our clients on structuring syndicated loans involving both international and local lenders as well as produce the necessary transaction documentation that would adequately protect our clients’ interests in this regard. These services are also available in acquisitions involving Nigerian companies.  In this regard, members of the Group have worked closely with other departments, especially infrastructure and natural resources, to support clients on projects such as green field natural gas utilization projects.

Intellectual Property      

Partners and associates of The Law Union have long and extensive experience of representing holders of intellectual property rights in the enforcement of such rights in Nigeria. Members of the firm have acted for local and international clients in registering their rights with the appropriate registries in Nigeria, and in litigating for enforcement of these rights before the Federal High Court when this has become necessary. We also monitor the registers and journals of the Trademarks and Patent Registries to ensure that the legitimate interests of our clients are not jeopardized.

We have also been involved in the negotiation of licenses and leases of intellectual property rights and providing other advice on the Nigerian law of trademarks, copyright, patents, trade secrets, confidential information etc.
