Banks and other financial institutions often rely on our representation in lending and other capital-providing activities. We are recognized for our expertise in all aspects of lending transactions, including providing advice and assistance on securitizations and creation/perfection of security interests, as well as addressing fraudulent conveyance issues.

In addition, we represent foreign and domestic banks and financial institutions in all types of Regulatory issues, including acquisitions and dispositions of Banks, compliance with Bank and Bank holding company regulations and establishment by out-of-state banks of branch offices or other operations in Nigeria.
