The depth of our team’s understanding of the regulatory landscape and needs within the Nigerian e-Commerce and financial technology ecosystem is at a more advanced stage than any other local law firm. This is as a result of our involvement and role in the set-up of the first indigenous and successful FinTech and e-Commerce startups and our providing them with day to day legal advice, as well to a host of other tech companies, media houses and star artistes in the Nigerian entertainment industry. We are one of only two firms recognised by Chambers & Partners 2019 in the FinTech space, ranking our Babajimi Ayorinde and the Firm for the Nigerian Market.
From our early days of advising players in the telecommunications industry on WAP and content provision on mobile phones, our TMT team constantly advises clients on their business initiatives and protection of their intellectual property rights, key contracts that govern their relationship with counterparts, regulatory and compliance issues, management of risks that are somewhat unique to their respective business especially within the Nigerian context, and capital raise.
Our strong grasp of the regulatory requirements covering this area and the breadth and depth of our Counsel’s specialist competencies to deliver superior value to clients is critical to our goal of acting as a one-stop-shop for them, such that we are carried along on every aspect of their businesses.
