Finance & Investment, Joint Ventures, Foreign Investment, Privatization And Public Private Partnership
We possess the requisite technical legal expertise to advise on and structure complex transactions for our clients from conception to completion as well as post completion management and transfer(where appropriate). The firm has vast experience and expertise on a diverse range of commercial arrangements and projects including public and private sector partnership, formation of special purpose vehicles, project finance, loan syndication, loan restructuring and rescheduling, compromise, debt conversion etc. as well as other funding options.
The commercial drive of the firm informs our deep understanding of the economic policy direction of the Government as well as to anticipate likely future policies so that we can advise the Government and their institutions and private clients (both local and foreign) as well as banks who intend to do business or are already doing business in Nigeria on tax issues, regulatory requirements, registrations, compliance, approvals and government incentives.
We appreciate the fact that most business concerns want their professional advisory services located in one unit and also place prime importance on the legal services aspect, and have therefore built relationships with financial services and other professional service institutions both locally and internationally so that our clients can leverage on these relationships to either get valued references or find in us a one stop shop for their professional business support requirements.
The firm recently led the successful challenge against the award of the privatization bid of the Aluminum Smelter Company by the Bureau of Private Enterprises in Nigeria, where the Supreme Court cancelled the award and affirmed the BFIG Group of America as the preferred bidder.
