Aceris Law’s Nigeria Arbitration Lawyers Desk is a dedicated team of lawyers at Aceris Law, a specialised international arbitration law firm, which accompanies clients involved in arbitrations concerning Nigeria, i.e., where Nigerian law applies, a contract is executed in Nigeria, the dispute is brought by or against a party in Nigeria, or the Nigerian State or a Nigerian State entity is involved.
Aceris Law’s Harvard, Oxford and Sorbonne trained lawyers are admitted to bars of Western Europe, Eastern Europe and North America and have significant prior experience dealing with commercial, construction and investment treaty arbitrations under the ICC, ICSID, UNCITRAL, LCIA, SCC, SIAC, ICDR, VIAC and other arbitration rules, many of which have concerned Nigeria and neighbouring States.
We maintain permanent access to offices in Lagos, Abuja and Port Harcourt to meet and work with clients, although our home office is in Geneva, Switzerland and we are always accessible to clients, regardless of their location, by videoconference. Our Nigeria Arbitration Lawyers Desk also has access to Nigerian jurisprudence and doctrine.
Our Nigeria Arbitration Lawyers Desk maintains ties to the best domestic Nigerian lawyers, who are involved depending on the specific needs of a given arbitration. This ensures that our clients obtain the best arbitration legal representation while also maintaining cost-effectiveness for arbitrations involving Nigeria.
