As Nigeria’s economy and population grow, so too does the need for new construction. There are plentiful opportunities for builders to participate in everything from national infrastructure projects to private real estate developments.
To be successful, those in the construction industry must have a legal partner who can guide them through Nigeria’s regulatory regime, land acquisition process and all other aspects of major projects.
The construction business is full of moving parts, and it is our job to help you put them together. Our lawyers apply a deep understanding of ever-changing local, national, and international economic factors to help clients plan and execute major building initiatives.
