Regulatory Compliance

ǼLEX has substantial expertise and experience in providing advice to clients on regulatory compliance. We advise upon matters relating to tax evasion, bribery, anti-corruption, securities, intellectual property fraud, banking and financial crimes. We advise local and foreign clients engaged in international transactions who conduct business in Nigeria, either directly or through subsidiaries, on the complexities of Nigerian law.

Our team, which includes Nigeria, Ghana, UK and New York trained lawyers, is able to bring to bear cross-border exposure and experience on issues ranging from drafting anti-corruption policies and procedures, dealing with cross-border information requests, conducting audits into legal and regulatory compliance of the operations of major companies to working with clients in ensuring compliance with laws such as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and the UK Bribery Act.

We have advised companies operating in a diverse range of industries on bribery and anti-corruption matters. Some of these industries include oil and gas, construction, infrastructure, consumer products, aviation and consultancy services.

We are the Nigerian partner firm for TRACE International, a non-profit membership association that pools resources to provide practical and cost-effective anti-bribery compliance solutions for multinational companies and their commercial intermediaries.
