The aviation sector has become very important not only as a means of transportation but for the purpose of facilitating businesses both locally and internationally. Our aviation practice group ranges from advisory services to air transport providers who intend to enter the Nigerian airspace for business, regulatory consultancy services to aviation regulators concerned about compliance with safety regulations, to claims for damages and losses suffered by both air service providers and air travelers. We also advise on development and concession of critical infrastructure at air travel facilities and maintenance services.
