Your company operates against a backdrop of volatility amid an ever-changing legal, regulatory and political landscape. When a dispute arises, it will not take long for it to become an existential threat to your business.
We have built a stellar reputation as Nigeria’s leading law firm for resolving these high stakes disputes in domestic and international dispute resolution, which is inclusive of litigation, arbitration, mediation and conciliation.
Dispute resolution is the cornerstones of our firm. We were founded in 1980 by Chief Wole Olanipekun, OFR, Senior Advocate of Nigeria, who to this day remains one of the nation’s top lawyers. His pragmatic-yet-tough approach to dispute resolution permeates our entire firm, which now includes two Silks and multiple Senior Advocates, along with a deep bench of the country’s most zealous and strategic dispute resolution experts.
We have the local knowledge to apply all necessary regulatory, economic, political and cultural context to any dispute you face, and then develop a practical path toward resolution. Additionally, we have successfully represented major domestic and international companies in every forum in the country.
Whether your company is entering the Nigerian market for the first time or you have done business here for years, you know that competition is intensifying and risks have the potential to escalate. If a dispute arises, you could face serious disruption and expense.
This is why our lawyers do everything possible to minimize our clients’ risk exposure and prevent disputes. However, when complications arise, you will find no lawyers more equipped than ours to aggressively fight for the best outcome possible.
We guide clients through negotiations and help them select the best dispute resolution method available, whether that means litigation, arbitration, mediation, conciliation or other alternative dispute resolution. We prepare every matter exhaustively as if we were going all the way to trial.
Whether the case is ultimately resolved in the courtroom or at the negotiation table, our deep, thorough preparation means we are ready for anything.
Our dispute resolution team offers deep litigation, arbitration, mediation, and conciliation experience across a wide variety of sectors and multiple practice areas.
