Welcome to Charles Anthony
Our origins date back to 1975 when our parent firm was established to offer legal services of the highest standard. We seek to maintain this tradition in a full-service independent practice geared to meet the challenges of a world in constant evolution. Our steadfast concentration on the Nigerian market has established Charles Anthony as a preeminent law firm based in the City of Lagos. Afterall, sustaining the second largest economy in Africa and the largest in West Africa merits allegiance.
We know the land, people, cultures, legislations, courts, agencies, departments, commissions and parastatals. Our highly skilled lawyers, practicing in all significant areas of the law and possessing experience of international legal practice, give us a decided edge over our competitors. At Charles Anthony, the client comes first. As a compact sized firm, our outstanding lawyers have the time to resolve legal and business challenges in partnership with clients who receive their personal attention.
Having practiced on the international legal circuit for well over a decade, our founder, Charles Adeogun-Phillips, places the highest value on collaboration with firms outside our jurisdiction, and has sought to build and develop alliances with leading firms across Africa, Europe, the Middle-East, Asia and Australia. Such cross-border association is indeed necessary to ensure that we provide our clients with seamless representation across all practice areas and continents.
Due to our international approach to the practice of law, some of our lawyers have multi-jurisdictional qualifications, whilst others have vast experience in acting on international and cross-border transactions. We are capable of acting as either transaction lawyers or as local advising counsel. Charles Anthony is one of the few firms in the world with devoted expertise in the practice of UN administrative law. We work in English and French and several of our lawyers are fluent in other languages.
The skills, enthusiasm and development of each individual constitute fundamental values which we continually strive to develop. They allow us to fulfill the role that our clients–and society–expect of an independent law firm, geared to meet the challenges of a world in constant evolution.
We look forward to welcoming you.
