Solola & Akpana was established in 1997 (by Tope Solola and Iboroma Akpana) and has become a strong leader in our chosen practices (which are split evenly between litigation and transactional matters) and delineated geographies.
The firm's size, resources, geographic breadth, advanced IT and business oriented culture which is deeply entrepreneurial ensure that our chosen clients receive responsive, value-added services.
We are proud of the service we have delivered to our clients over the past decade and the firm we have built and are excited about its future. A future, which we shall secure by keeping our clients at the very center of our world.
The firm specializes in providing a wide range of both domestic and international commercial work to its clients, which include oil exploration, production and service companies, telecommunications operators, banks and other financial institutions, projects managers, governmental agencies and private individuals. The firm is particularly active in the oil and gas industry where, as a result of its deep roots in the Niger Delta region and the considerable expertise acquired through previous involvement, it provides representation for most of the leading multinational and indigenous companies in that industry. The firm has also built demonstrable capacity in its Abuja office which has greatly boosted our regulatory practice, while its Lagos office provides capacity for its banking, project finance and corporate services.
The firm's commercial litigation and arbitration practice is presently one of the firm's strongest practice groups, a reflection of our results driven strategy in dispute resolution.
The firm handles real estate and general commercial work, and about 60% of its activity is of a corporate nature, including mergers and acquisitions, restructuring, corporate financing, banking and investment laws.
