Areas Of Practice
Our ‘white-collar’ and business crime practice includes representing sovereign States, major oil and gas corporations, and ultra-high-net-worth individuals in complex corruption and fraud cases, often with cross-border elements. Our firm represented an ultra-high-net-worth individual charged with money laundering in challenging a $40 million non-conviction based interim asset forfeiture order in favour of a sovereign State. Our Firm has also advised an international investor in a commercial dispute with a sovereign state, which resulted in the repudiation of a multi-billion-dollar infrastructure contract, following allegations of fraud, corruption and misconduct levelled by the said State against some of its public office holders. Our Firm has advised two joint venture partners, including an oil exploration corporation owned by a sovereign State and a multinational exploration oil company, in $1billion fraud claim against the operator of the joint venture in 3 oil producing fields.
We have also assisted in training law enforcement agents in Nigeria on mechanisms to recover the proceeds of corruption.
