Leaders in representing Nigeria’s energy leaders.

Major energy companies, investors and government officials have long recognized Nigeria’s potential as an energy and power generation giant. Development of our rich conventional and renewable energy sources, however, has been hampered by infrastructure difficulties; finance, tax and regulatory questions; and lack of public/private cooperation. Our team of seasoned lawyers are leading the fight for change.   


Finding Common Ground Among Public and Private Entities

Our energy and power lawyers frequently act as intermediaries between global energy companies, investors and government bodies. We have earned an excellent reputation among sector regulators and officials within the Federal government thanks to our ongoing commitment to ongoing reforms.


We continue to work with industry and government leaders to bring stability to Nigeria’s energy sector so both private companies and Nigerian citizens may reap the economic benefits of our nation’s vast resources.

Resolving Energy and Power Disputes

You can trust our trial lawyers to protect your rights regarding power purchase agreements, project finance disputes, royalty disputes, oil and gas pricing conflicts, construction-related lawsuits, and regulatory enforcement actions.
