Telecommunications and Information Technology

With the deregulation and liberalization of the Nigerian telecommunications sector, foreign and local investors have made remarkable impact in the telecommunications industry. The privatization of NITEL and the emergence of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) as the regulator of the telecommunications industry have combined to create a robust practice area in which the depth of qualified personnel at Adewale Adeniji, LP comes to the fore. Our lawyers have advised on virtually all areas of telecommunications law over the past decade. These include reviewing and opining on the state of the law and regulations in the sector, conducting due diligence on potential targets, compliance issues with the regulatory authorities, corporate finance and taxation advisory work, advising on foreign direct investment and exchange control issues, corporate governance and corporate structure, labour and employment law, drafting and review of various contracts such as leasing and purchasing contracts, joint venture agreements and shareholders agreements.
