is a leading law firm with a high degree of specialisation in energy and natural resources law. UNC was established in 1990, primarily to render legal services to the oil industry, and to support the several joint venture companies then in operation as oil industry service companies, but has evolved ... into a full-service law firm with a team of dedicated lawyers and a full complement of highly qualified administrative personnel. UNC has been actively involved in mediation and international commercial arbitration, both locally and internationally, and in this respect has acted either as in-country counsel or rendered legal advice in arbitration proceedings and the enforcement or otherwise of arbitral awards under both the rules of the International Chamber of Commerce or the London Court of International Arbitration. The firm has appeared as lead firm and/or co-counsel and has been involved in preparation of processes and analysis in respect of arbitration in the UK and the USA involving Nigerian companies or individuals and other matters in so far as they relate to Nigerian law or the conduct of business in Nigeria in general. UNC has been involved in many precedent-setting cases in Nigeria’s legal system up to the apex court with a very high rate of success.
