Dispute Resolution

Our dispute resolution practice is adept in commercial litigation, particularly in the areas of contracts, real estate and infringement of intellectual property.

However, an emerging trend in global commercial best practice is the use of arbitration and mediation as key methods of resolving disputes and conflicts.

Incentives for using these methods include reputation assurance, privacy and confidentiality, promotion of goodwill, preservation of business and personal relationships and effective cost containment.

We counsel clients and work closely with them to secure these incentives, appropriately.

Our lawyers are members of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (UK) and the Lagos Multidoor Courthouse and have been involved in several private arbitration as well as mediation proceedings.

We have established a track record of success in facilitating resolution of our clients’ disputes and conflicts with governmental and regulatory authorities and institutions, as well as with other private companies and other corporate organizations.

In many cases, we have been able to assist clients in saving time associated with litigation in Nigeria as well as achieving an optimal rationalization of costs associated with litigation.
