The Arbitration team is ably led by our Principal partner, a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitration, Nigeria (FCI Arb) and a recipient of the overall best candidate and winner of the first position prize of the Institute.
We are actively involved in alternate dispute resolution and the settlement of commercial disputes. The scope has been enlarged especially in Lagos State and other jurisdictions with the establishment of the court annexed Lagos Multi door Court House (LMCH) and the amendment of the Lagos State High Court rules to include referrals to Arbitration in court. We have in handling some of our clients matters referred commercial cases for settlement via any of the alternate dispute resolution procedures. This mode of dispute resolution has its advantages, which include privacy and the choice of venue/ Arbitrators.
Our principal consultant has also been involved in quite a lot of arbitration matters over the years. Our scope of International Arbitration Assignments span the World Bank Administrative Tribunal in Washington, USA (our principal consultant was the president of the WBAT 2004/5), Permanent Court of Arbitration in the Hague, Netherlands, and ICC, Paris, France (Our principal consultant was vicepresident of its arbitration chamber). Our firm’s name and reputation in the field of arbitration is quite high, the experience and exposure we have gathered over the years gives us a considerable edge
