Practice Areas

Banking & Finance

We are ever ready to scrutinize the the regulatory mechanisms of financial service operations 

We have based our banks and other financial institutions advisory services and litigation practice upon the wider scenario of cross-border regulatory compliance, financial markets operations and international best practices in governance and risk management procedures.

In view of the relatively volatile nature of the sector, We prefer to remain attuned to the transactional needs of our clients by being available to advise them on a corporate retainership basis to provide long term value to their business.

We have acted in various capacities for two of the leading Nigerian commercial banks, the apex bank regulator and several other Financial Institutions.
