Real estate transactions and litigation

The firm’s real estate department represents clients engaged in all areas of Nigeria’s real estate law.

Real estate property law significantly impacts many critical aspects of business and commercial transactions. For example, developing, constructing, or expanding a new business operation usually involves the acquisition of real estate. Similarly, the merger and acquisition of companies and financial institutions will also likely include real estate transactions. We have a strong clientele of Nigerian and global companies in energy development, such as the mining of oil and gas; power projects; power plant construction projects; solar power projects and thermal power plant projects. These developments also necessitate the acquisition or use of real estate and understanding real estate law.
