Over the years, we have been involved in the legal aspects of several construction projects. Our Infrastructure team played a key role in the public-private partnership arrangement for the pre-commissioning (construction) of a hospital in a South-South state, advising a private investor on its role in the transaction. We are also legal advisers on three (3) other similar construction projects in the Healthcare Sector. Our reputation as industry experts is evidenced by our yearly contribution to the construction section of the internationally acclaimed publication ‘Getting the Deal through’. Other notable construction transactions we have been engaged in includes advising a consortium of 19 French companies that won the bid to construct the aborted Lagos Metro line on the $1 Billion (One Billion US Dollars) financing required to fund the project; advising on the financing of the $400 Million (Four Hundred Million US Dollars) required for the Escravos/Egbin Gas Pipeline project; providing legal support to the winning bidder (Abuja Gateway Consortium) on the $101.1 million concession of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja. We advised the consortium made up of six foreign and local partners through to the final stages of the transaction.
We continue to play leading roles in the legal aspects of several construction projects. We were instrumental in the PPP between our client and the Akwa Ibom State Government being involved in the pre-commissioning (construction) aspects of a hospital as well as setting up a management team to operate the hospital. We are also working on three (3) other similar construction projects in the Healthcare Sector.
