G Elias

Founded in 1994, G. Elias & Co. is one of Nigeria’s leading business law firms. We have an international outlook and an outstanding record of carrying out critical, innovative and complex work to the highest standards. We are active on the ‘cutting edge’ of Nigerian law and legal practice. We are organized as eight practice groups operating across ten sectors. The practice groups are: dispute resolution, corporate (including mergers and acquisitions), banking, capital markets; compliance, tax, intellectual property and employment. The ten sectors are: oil and gas and mining, electric power, telecommunications and technology, media and entertainment, food and healthcare, trade and industry, transport and logistics, financial services, real estate and construction and infrastructure.

In the last three years, we have been consistently ranked as a Top Tier Law Firm by the International Financial Law Review (“IFLR”) and Chambers Global in all of the areas of law practice that they cover in Nigeria (that is capital markets, banking, project finance, energy, mergers and acquisitions, and intellectual property).

G. Elias & Co. is the Nigerian member of the Africa Legal Network (“ALN”), a leading independent African alliance of top tier law firms. ALN member firms regularly manage deals across jurisdictions using a “one-stop shop” approach.
