Financial Services Regulations

Olaniwun Ajayi offers a market-leading and comprehensive service advising clients on regulatory issues within the banking, finance and capital market sectors. We actively advise clients on the development, application and enforcement of financial regulations as well as on compliance and risk management issues.

We have led the way in several ground-breaking legislative initiatives. For instance, we were appointed as advisers to the CBN on the recently concluded financial sector reforms which involved the injection of over N600 Billion into affected Nigerian banks and the emergence of the Asset Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON).

The major role we have played in the development of important legislation in the financial sector is an important part of our success. Having worked closely with the government to develop the law, we are uniquely positioned to provide clients with up-to-the-minute advice on important aspects and key implications of all the latest legislative and regulatory initiatives.

Our approach is practical and commercial. We focus on what our clients are able to achieve rather than what they are not allowed to do. We simplify complexity in order to give clear guidance on the direction to take. In short, no other law firm offers the level of expertise and comprehension of financial regulations in Nigeria.
