Our mission is to blend our extensive sector experience and insights to deliver high quality and value-added advice and solutions to our clients at a reasonable cost
ADVISORY Legal Consultants is a specialist boutique law firm based in Lagos, Nigeria. We provide bespoke transactional, regulatory and legal advisory services to businesses and projects in Nigeria’s energy, resources and infrastructure sectors.
By focusing on niche areas, we are in the forefront of sector trends and developments. Our specialism offers our clients a deep knowledge and understanding of our focal sectors that goes well beyond legal issues. In Nigeria’s fast evolving market place, this is a value–add for our clients.
ADVISORY was founded in 2011 by a former General Counsel of the Chevron Companies in Nigeria and a former partner at a leading commercial law firm in Nigeria with the aim of establishing a consultancy firm that offers specialized legal expertise to discerning clients. Both founders have had the unique opportunity of advising on some of the most topical projects and regulatory developments that have occurred in our focal sectors within the past twenty years. Leveraging on their unique expertise, combined with those of a carefully selected team of highly specialized professionals, we present our clients with a very unique and difficult-to-rival assemblage of specialist lawyers for their matter.
What makes us different?
Specialist Knowledge – an uncommon skill in Nigeria’s legal space
Our expertise has been developed through decades of deep industry experience. It covers legal, regulatory and policy issues in the energy, natural resources and infrastructure sectors and commercial and transactional matters that arise in project development and financing.
We are distinguished by our in-depth industry knowledge, our unmatched experience gained over decades on energy and infrastructure projects and our unique involvement in the design of the new legal, regulatory, policy and commercial landscape for our focal sectors. As specialists, we have demonstrable ability to fashion robust, innovative and practical solutions for our clients and we are confident in our ability to deliver the highest quality legal advice even in the most complex matters.
Solid grasp of policy and sector trends
We believe that a solid grasp of policy and sector trends is critical to rendering comprehensive advice to clients in our focal sectors. Accordingly, there is a strong policy component to our legal advice. Our unique experience in the formulation of public policy enables us to structure our advice and clients’ transactions in anticipation of future policy, legal and regulatory changes.
Solid understanding of your business
Our regular interaction with industry participants, including project teams, has deepened our knowledge of the commercial and technical issues that lawyers must appreciate in order to effectively render advice. Thus, we are equipped with the tools to provide our clients with comprehensive solutions to the issues that come up in their projects or transactions.
Unrivalled experience of work with virtually all key stakeholders
Our experience in working closely with governments, multilaterals, IOCs, financial institutions, Nigerian companies and local communities on a variety of issues brings a breadth of perspective to our industry knowledge, plus an unmatched network of contacts, which we bring to bear for the benefit of our clients.
Winning combination of strong in-house and external counsel perspectives
Some of our lawyers have extensive experience as senior in-house counsel with major oil and gas companies and financial institutions. We also have lawyers that have distinguished themselves in law practice, thereby offering our clients a mix of the best qualities of in-house and external counsel perspectives. These qualities include a commitment to provide the highest quality service at the best overall cost, taking into consideration our clients’ needs for prompt and complete updates.
