Commercial Litigation
At Blackfriars LLP, our acclaimed success in litigating cases in Nigerian courts begins from our listening approach. We listen attentively to the problems of our client. We pay attention to the finest detail of our client’s case. Nothing escapes our attention. Before rendering our advice on any matter, we first understand our clients' products and services and the surrounding business environment, including industry-wide factors. We then proceed to apply our intellect, experience, skills, and judgment to give our clients constructive advice in a clear, sound, timely and cost-effective manner to assist in achieving the desired goal.

We offer our clients candid advice on the risks and potential rewards of litigation, arbitration and mediation. We pursue this client-focused strategy to ensure that we have, and continue to develop clients who trust us implicitly and realize that we take their interests to heart.

Our lawyers are recognized for their considerable experience and excellence in pre-trial meetings, trials, criminal and regulatory investigations, hearings, appeals and crisis management situations. We have counselled diplomatic legations, industrial enterprises, financial institutions and individuals in many complex and sensitive matters.
