Trade and Investments

We regularly advise corporations and their boards of directors (as well as their special committees) on a host of matters, including corporate governance issues, regulatory reporting requirements, takeovers and takeover defenses, public-to-privates and conflict of interest and executive compensation issues.

We also provide our service to foreign corporations including a few individuals and firms seeking general business advisory services on various legal and regulatory issues, particularly aspects of doing and establishing businesses in Nigeria. The advice of the firm is usually sought for a variety of services such as helping to identify appropriate local partners, due diligence work, or incorporation of a limited liability company or other appropriate vehicle for conducting the business. Naturally, assistance is also offered in preparing the documentation suitable to serve as instruments of the investment or relationship.

The firm also conducts agency, franchising, distribution and licensing advice and registrations
