Our firm, ǼLEX is a full service commercial and litigation law firm with its head office in Lagos and other offices in Port Harcourt and Abuja, Nigeria and in Accra, Ghana. The firm’s lawyers have developed specialist skills and have gained significant deal of experience from their involvement in transactions and projects. Our local knowledge and our regular interaction with key players in the sectors we operate in, allow us to structure our advice on projects and transactions in anticipation of, and consistent with changes in policy and regulation.
ǼLEX has provided legal advisory services on major transactions and projects across a broad spectrum of issues to airlines, financial institutions, lessors, insurers, manufacturers and other stakeholders in the aviation industry. We regularly advise on aircraft finance and leasing and have in the past year been involved in several large aircraft financing transactions.
We act as Nigerian counsel to several international airlines and other aviation entities. We act for airlines in respect of passenger, cargo and baggage claims and insurance disputes. We also advise on product liability issues, registration, securitization and recovery of aviation assets within Ghana and Nigeria.
The firm also has a strong commercial litigation practice led by a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) with all members entitled to appear before all courts in Nigeria. Our practice engages in debt recovery, corporate restructuring and has recovered substantial sums for airline clients from government departments and parastatals as well as from defaulting travel agencies.
