Advisory, Corporate and Transactions

Advisory, Corporate and Transactions

No two clients are ever the same, just as no two transactions are ever the same. With this guiding principle in mind, through our Advisory, Corporate and Transactions practice, our objective is always to work closely with our clients, with the ultimate aim of helping them achieve their goals. We deliver quality client-focused legal services to our clients on their non-contentious matters.


We provide comprehensive business advisory services and advise on a wide range of legal issues relating to the formation of businesses, companies, partnerships and joint ventures, foreign investment, regulatory compliance, corporate governance, insolvency, intellectual property, tax and immigration.

We also advise foreign clients on the legal aspects of their investments or investing in various sectors of the Nigerian economy.


Our corporate work involves the incorporation of limited liability companies and incorporated trustees as well as the registration of partnerships, sole proprietorships and businesses in Nigeria. We advise on and structure shareholder, joint venture and other similar co-operation agreements.

Our corporate work involves advising clients on all applicable rules and regulations regarding company, statutory and other meetings; and compliance with statutory and corporate governance requirements.
