OALP Dispute Resolution Wrap-Up 2022 and 2023 Outlook

In 2022, the dispute resolution space, as with other sectors in Nigeria returned to a semblance of normalcy after reeling from the inimical impact of COVID-19 as Nigerian Courts fully returned to physical sittings, though virtual sittings continue to be part of our judicial system.
