   Corporate & Commercial Law Group


General Corporate & Commercial Law

This Group specialises in the formation of companies, negotiation and drafting of shareholders’ agreements, joint venture agreements, advising on share and asset acquisitions and disposals, mergers and acquisitions, restructuring, winding up, company secretarial services and corporate tax advice. A substantial part of the work undertaken by the Corporate Department is devoted to the special needs of foreign investors, who have to comply with Nigeria’s foreign investment regulations. Our lawyers have developed a reputation for resourcefulness in this area by creating special purpose vehicles through which foreign and local investors and entrepreneurs carry out business activities.

This Group also, covers areas of commercial law not covered by the other Groups. Its work includes advising on employment law, real estate, conveyances, construction law and property development, and private client services. Our growing government relations practice is presently handled out of this Group.

Shipping & Aviation

The Shipping and Aviation Department acts for ship owners, charterers, shippers, aircraft owners and lessees, insurers and P & I clubs. We have advised on ship and aircraft arrests, cargo loss and damage, ship and aircraft sale and purchase, maritime collisions, bills of lading and charterparty claims.

In the past, members of our firm have undertaken work in fixed-wing aircraft and helicopter financing, negotiation and conclusion of aircraft lease and lease-purchase agreements, aviation insurance, airline licensing, aircraft registration and other aviation regulatory matters. Recent work in this area includes negotiating with a major creditor on behalf of the Nigerian national carrier and advising the promoters of a West African sub-regional aviation venture capital fund.
