Law Reform


Our lawyers have long been active in advocacy for law reform. They have served on Federal Committees for the reform of oil-and-gas, pension and securitization law, and on the establishment of a commercial regulator for the shipping industry.

They have also served on State Committees to reform arbitration and trusts law and for the re-compilation of all of the statutes of Lagos State, the nation’s commercial capital.

They have also worked on developing new legislation on residential mortgages and foreclosure, mortgage institutions, and on the regulation of both ocean shipping and inland waterways shipping.

Our lawyers prepared papers for and have been invited to sessions of the National Assembly on such new legislation. They have also published extensively on new statutes on foreign investment, port reform, privatization, insurance, cabotage and mergers and acquisitions law.
