As Nigeria becomes increasingly prosperous, coupled with its growing population and economy, the necessity to revamp Nigeria’s infrastructure is at a crucial juncture. Traditionally, the federal, state, and local governments have financed critical projects, such as building roads, bridges, and ports. As economic pressures such as swings in the exchange rate, fluctuations in oil prices, and liquidity limitations deplete fiscal budgets, the private sector has stepped in to create financing solutions to provide the necessary capital required to modernise and develop the country’s infrastructure. PPPs are now a significant key developmental tool in acquiring major public works projects, and project finance is the primary method of achieving funding for these capital projects.
Our award-winning project finance lawyers and PPP legal experts have proudly served at the forefront of numerous landmark project finance transactions and infrastructure projects over the years, including:
The Lekki-Epe Toll Road Concessioning Project
Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport Concessioning
Indorama Fertilizer and Methanol Plant

Many drilling, reserves development, and pipeline construction financings
