Our firm contributes to the development of the legal framework of Nigeria through various consultations with government and regulatory authorities at the national and State levels. We have worked closely with the National Legislature as lead legal adviser on policy formulation, preparing draft legislation for the telecommunications sector and the power sector. We represented NCAA before the Nigerian Federal Legislature at the 2006 public hearings concerning the (then draft) current Civil Aviation Act.
GEP was in consultation with the Federal Government on the Petroleum Industry Bill amongst other reform efforts in the oil & gas sector. We continue to provide draft legislation services for the National Assembly. One of our advantages is predicated on the fact that our Abuja Office is strategically located in the heart of the nation’s capital which remains the hub of all political and regulatory activities.
Our firm carries out compliance audits of the existing legal and regulatory structure of new clients to identify gaps in compliance levels and advise on adherence to all legal and regulatory compliance obligations. We go further to develop compliance manuals and subsequently carry out regular and on-going monitoring of compliance levels and advise on risk mitigation strategies. GEP assists clients with business process re-engineering and advises on the establishment of appropriate corporate governance structures in line with relevant legislations and regulations and ethical best practices.
