Build Your Future in Nigeria with Guidance From Our Real Estate and Construction Team

Nigeria’s economic potential continues to attract real estate developers and companies from all sectors. 


Whether you are contemplating a relatively simple construction project, orchestrating a complex series of transactions or seeking to sell an existing property, you will need legal advice from lawyers who understand every part of the property life cycle. We are those lawyers.

Working Through Nigeria’s Unique Land Ownership Regime 

Land access and title ownership in Nigeria are determined by the government. As such, real estate transactions and construction projects are intimately connected to government actors, community leaders, influential families and others. 

Land use and land management are crucially important to the nation’s security and the population’s quality of life, so developers and investors should expect to explain their goals to various regulatory authorities.

Our real estate legal team has an excellent reputation with federal, state and local officials throughout the country.
We know the subtleties and customs of multiple jurisdictions, allowing us to effectively present your interest and advocate on your behalf.
