Banking, Insurance and Financial Services
We have the right people and experience
The past few years have been some of the most challenging in the financial markets and have required fresh thinking as the markets adjust to continually changing economic, political and regulatory conditions.
We understand that our clients’ needs vary according to each specific situation and so our banking and finance lawyers draw on deep product expertise and regularly work to develop innovative solutions for our clients. We have acted for a range of local and foreign banks as well as insurance companies and our lawyers have been involved in some of the most important banking and finance transactions in recent years in Nigeria.
We advise on regulatory and licensing requirements, compliance, drafting of standard form documentation, completion of regulatory questionnaires and drafting bank security documents such as debentures, mortgages, charges, registrations and securities.
Given our key skills in product development, we have also advised on a number of new product structures for Nigeria’s financial services intermediaries.
- Structured finance
- Secured and unsecured lending
- Debt and equity securities
- Regulatory compliance
- Payment and settlement systems
- Syndicated lending transactions
