Our expertise in Nigerian Communications Law Practice is acknowledged locally and internationally. The brand “the foremost communications law firm” was earned from our sustained leadership role in the communications industry in Nigeria; dating from its fledging years till date.Quite early in our retainership years with the Nigerian Telecommunications Limited (NITEL), Nigeria’s first national telecoms carrier, we distinguished ourselves as the External Counsel with the credentials and the capabilities to handle core telecommunications assignments and it was in that circumstance that we represented NITEL in landmark assignments.
With the reconstitution of the industry’s regulatory agency, the Nigerian Communications Commission (“NCC”) in 1999; PUC began full-scale involvement in the areas of industry policies and regulations, legislative drafting and advocacy, advisory services in licensing arrangements and documentations, telecoms equipment acquisitions and leases, collocation models and agreements, corporate restructurings including mergers and acquisitions of telecom businesses, amongst other services.
Our wealth of experience in the communications sector extends beyond its telecommunications arm and encompasses the other two arms of broadcasting and information technology. We provide advisory, advocacy and transactional services to an array of local and international clients cutting across the public and private sectors. Our knowledge of the regulatory practices, systems and environment has come to bear in the effective solutions we proffer to our clients in the pursuit of their business objectives.
