Since its independence from Great Britain in 1960, aviation law and practice in Nigeria has been guided by increasingly liberal government policy. However, the past twenty years engendered significant private participation in the aviation industry. We have rendered advice to clients on a wide range of aviation issues such as the creation of security interests upon acquisition of commercial (passenger) aircraft by a foreign client, aircraft finance and charter arrangements, insurance claims under aviation policies and related subrogation claims. Our Litigation Team has also conducted litigation on behalf of clients regarding breaches of aircraft lease agreements, default of fee payments due upon air navigation services rendered to private Nigerian Airlines, and related issues.
