We have advised and represented Clients in respect of transactions relating to investments in energy infrastructure in Nigeria. Our firm has advised the main Government Special Purpose Vehicle for investments in critical electricity infrastructure in Nigeria in its gas to power framework transactions, and has also acted as its Counsel in disputes arising from transactions relating to rights of way issues which typically stall energy projects in rural communities.

Our firm was engaged by an investor in the energy sector to advise on its proposed project for development of electric power infrastructure involving its foreign technical partners, the Federal Government of Nigeria and the relevant transmission company. Our services centered on the review of Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) Contracts and related contractual documents on the development of electricity infrastructure in Nigeria.
