Professional Biography:

Fred Onuobia, Managing Partner. LL.M (London); LL.B (University of Nigeria, Nsukka). Sometime proxime accessit among graduating students at the University of Nigeria’s law faculty. Member of the Nigerian Bar.

Firm Overview:

We were founded in 1994 and have become one of Nigeria’s leading business law firms. We have always had an international outlook. We have a reputation for, and an outstanding record of, carrying out critical, innovative and complex work to the highest standards.

We have advised and represented our clients on several of the most significant recent developments in Nigerian business law practice.

We are organized as seven practices covering eight industry sectors. The practice groups are: dispute resolution; corporate (including mergers and acquisitions and private equity); banking; capital markets; tax; intellectual property; and employment.

The eight sectors are: financial services, oil-and-gas; electric power; telecommunications, media and technology; agribusiness, food and healthcare; trade and industry; transport and logistics; and construction and real estate (“fast moving consumer goods” occur in several of these sectors). There are clients of many nationalities and every size in these sectors.

They range from foremost global multinational enterprises to a number of ambitious, home-grown fledglings, from government-controlled enterprises (we have advised on numerous privatizations) to companies controlled entirely by private sector actors.

We have and maintain numerous contacts in Nigerian business and government circles, and with law firms and lawyers’ organizations based both in and outside Nigeria. We are a member of Africa Legal Network (ALN), an association of leading independent law firms founded and based in Africa
