OAL is the leading public sector law firm in Nigeria. Public sector law examines the role of law, legal institutions, and legal systems in both domestic and international jurisdictions. OAL advocates the need to recognize the intersection between law and economics. By a review of comparative law, international financial institutions, domestic micro-economic policy in the context of development law, OAL understands how the law may foster a desired change in the way institutions can be organized to achieve national policy.
As the leading public sector law firm in Nigeria, OAL assists government at Federal, State, and local levels, as well as multilateral development agencies, address complex development issues; manage risks, improve measures and enhance overall quality, efficiency, and effectiveness of public service through regulatory reforms and disciplined programme oversight. Since a thin line divides ‘public’ and ‘private’, our work also supports private entities with their internally generated law-related work.
We also catalyze Private-Public-Partnership for wealth creation. We offer support to investors (Local+ International). We link them up to relevant public institutions and bodies and assist them to navigate through the relevant legal and regulatory environment in Nigeria.
Our Policy Dialogue Series is an OAL initiative that highlights the impact of the law on economic development. The Policy Dialogues and other incidental programs is an annual event that started with the 2014 Legal/Business Summit. As the leading public sector law firm in Nigeria, we bring together legal and economic policy experts to raise issues, discuss them, and ensure that solutions are implemented.
Our tools of engagement are as follows;
- Legislative advocacy
- Strategic Impact Litigation
- Client support/ hand- holding
- Expounding new/emerging areas of law e.g. Space, Aviation, International Development law etc.
