Public Policy and Government Affairs

Public Policy and Government Affairs

Our Government Business Practice advises and represents the Federal Government of Nigeria and its agencies, State Governments as well as numerous international and indigenous organisations within and outside Nigeria. The practice has been at the forefront of public policy development in Nigeria. As a testament to our experience, one of our partners has been recognized for his immense contribution to the shaping of legislative and policy reforms in Nigeria, having led the drafting of epoch-making bills including the Fiscal Responsibility Bill (now Act) and the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria Bill (now Act).

Our expertise cuts across all sectors of the Nigerian economy. We have played an instrumental role in the capital market reforms, in our advisory capacity to the Securities Exchange Commission on means of achieving revitalization of the capital market. We also drafted and secured the passage of the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria Act, the first of its kind in Nigeria.

We harness the fusion between public policy objectives and the private business goals and bring this to the fore as we cater to our clients. Thus, our clients look to us to assist in regulatory interface with principal government departments and regulators and we are able to leverage on our familiarity with these agencies for their benefit.
