We strive to make our business one of the best international standards to be recognised globally.

The quality of our lawyers and breadth of our expertise adds to our unique ability to provide and guarantee excellent service tailored to match and satisfy the intricate needs of our clients. We do not compromise our integrity, which makes us stand out in the legal industry. With years of experience and various competences in different aspects of law, we have been able to establish a dominant presence in the legal field in Nigeria and across the world. We are a law firm that constantly seeks innovation in areas where others see challenges and due to our resilience and dedication, we set a path for others to follow. We were the pioneer law firm to organise an international business-law seminar in India. The seminar presented unique business matchmaking opportunities to attending companies, skirting the usual administrative, bureaucratic, and cultural divides that typically hamper cross-border transactions. The fall-out of these seminars and advocacy gave rise to various legal reforms and implementation of sectoral laws and policies in Nigeria.

We are innovation-driven, approaching each problem with a solution mindset as we understand that every client is unique. The firm remains consistently ranked amongst the foremost Nigerian law firms in many dimensions. Besides the other national and international awards and recognitions (including the first Presidential Enabling Business Environment Council (PEBEC) Impact Award 2017) the firm had received in the past, the firm was recently in July 2019 awarded the “Law Firm of the Year (Nigeria) 2019” by Legal Era at the Africa Law Awards 2019 held in Johannesburg, South Africa, in recognition of the firm’s legal finesse, innovation and accomplishments.
