Nafisa Adama


Nafisa believes her job as a lawyer extends beyond the transaction, and she finds joy in taking on new challenges. Her approach is ‘hands-on’ – tackling all aspects of a legal issue and using all resources available to provide maximum value. Nafisa brings ingenuity and a positive attitude to all transactions and enjoys exploring new areas of knowledge. She is passionate about projects involving finance, energy, real estate and infrastructure.


Nafisa advises clients on a broad range of corporate, commercial, legal and regulatory issues involving insolvency, project finance, corporate restructuring, mergers and acquisitions, construction, and oil and gas matters. She was part of the team that advised a leading financial institution in connection with a US$270 million facility granted to a Nigerian indigenous oil and gas exploration and production company to finance development of the company’s oil fields in the Niger Delta region.
