Litigation and Arbitration

Energy and natural resources investments are capital intensive, long term in nature, typically high-risk high-reward projects, require physically fixed infrastructure, and are usually operated under strict sovereign controls. As a result, there are few sectors where those who participate in them are exposed to ever increasing environmental, regulatory, political and market risks that easily result in commercial or investment disputes.

Being a good energy dispute lawyer requires more than just a sound knowledge of the law and a mastery of the art of advocacy. When disputes do arise, participants in the energy industry require lawyers who possess these skills, but they also want the lawyers to be true specialists who understand the nuances of the industry.

We are the right fit. Crestle Zanders advises clients in proceedings in all Nigerian courts and tribunals, and appears for them in Nigeria’s superior courts, including the Supreme Court of Nigeria.
