The Partners have been active in the Nigerian capital market, having been part of the team of Solicitors who acted at different times for Issuing Houses, appointed Trustees or securities Issuing companies.

The principal areas of legal work are in the preparation of prospectuses, underwriting and vending agreements, placement memoranda, Trust Deeds and Debentures and issuing general advice on the offer structure. It has been our responsibility to ensure compliance with the Securities and Exchange Commission Act and Regulations and the Listing Requirements of the Nigerian Stock Exchange, in so far as these legislations are not at variance with the Nigerian Investment Promotion Decree No. 16 and the Foreign Exchange (Monitoring and Miscellaneous Provisions) Decree No. 17, both of 1995.
