Asset Recovery 2015: Analysis

The fourth edition of Who's Who Legal: Asset Recovery selects 341 practitioners from 202 firms across 74 jurisdictions as leaders in this field of law.

Mediation 2015: Trends

Amid continued economic uncertainty, even in jurisdictions that have seen a welcome recovery over the past 12 months, the focus of both global and domestic corporations has shifted towards cost reduction and mitigation.

Mediation 2015: Analysis

We recognise 295 of the world’s leading commercial mediators, and each should be considered to be among the outstanding experts in their jurisdiction. Our listing encompasses sole practitioners, barristers, boutique firms and former judges. We also select the 10 most highly regarded commercial mediators in the world.

Asset Recovery 2015: Trends

The variety of litigation in this sphere has expanded in the past 12 months, as the caseloads stemming from the global financial crisis diminishes. The types of frauds now occurring call for more creative litigation strategies, which have spawned greater interest in asset recovery procceedings. A number of new entrants have been attracted by this expanding practice area. However, the complexity of the field, along with the established set of firms in the market, means that success is not assured for these new contenders.

Intellectual Property Analysis 2015

Intellectual property continues to be a key issue in Nigeria, with both domestic and international companies keen to make sure that their brands and designs are protected. While an update of existing regulations has still not materialised, practitioners remain hopeful that this is on the horizon. Any resulting changes would increase confidence in the market, making it more attractive to companies and offering lawyers more work. In this chapter we recommend 20 outstanding practitioners.

Insolvency & Restructuring Analysis 2015

As the business community in Nigeria continues to lobby for changes to domestic rescue rules and key provisions in the Bankruptcy Act, discussions between stakeholders over whether the country should adopt a unified insolvency law are ongoing. We single out 11 sector-leading lawyers for their expertise in this field.

Environment Analysis 2015

Environmental issues are gaining even greater prominence as the number of challenges the Ministry of Environment faces continue to increase rapidly. With drought, desertification, oil spillage, pollution control and poor implementation of the Great Green Wall project just a few of the problems Nigeria faces today, work in this sphere looks set to remain at a high level. We select four practitioners to feature in this chapter.

Energy & Natural Resources Analysis 2015

Activity in the oil and gas markets has remained buoyant despite a dearth of new licensing rounds. International companies including Shell and Total have sold assets in Nigeria in the last year to local companies as they refocus their portfolio strategies, keeping many lawyers in the field active during the last 12 months. In this chapter we identify 27 exceptional energy and natural resources lawyers.
