Advising on the negotiation, development and finance of new power projects

AOS Practice is well equipped to advise companies and investors in the burgeoning Nigerian energy sector particularly major players in the on-going privatization process of the electricity industry. The firm’s energy regulation lawyers are closely involved in the restructuring of the energy infrastructure and electric industries. The role of a law firm is not simply to react to changes in the law and the marketplace as they occur, but also to anticipate those changes for the benefit of its clients.
