Deji Olatoye – The Lodt Law Offices

Practice/Organization Description

The Lodt, operating from Nigeria, is a law practice steeped in the transactional and dispute ends of commercial and general practices. Our market and industry focus has enabled us build a practice that provides apt solutions and resolutions to the transactional and dispute needs of our clients. Our third head of service offerings, institutionalisation, demonstrates our understanding of the broadening scope of the Enterprise lawyer's responsibilites to corporate clients in building internal capacities that coupd appropriately respond to increasingly value-based enternal business environment.

We are thus configured – while continuing to utilise our experiences to provide the traditional industries with time-honoured services in corporate and project finance, mergers & acquisition, insolvency, banking and property law as well as company secretarial work – to identify and build unique competencies around emerging markets including those in infrastructure, electronic payments, technologies, corporate governance, cross-border expansion of businesses, venture capital & private equity, business incubation, outsourcing, offshoring, franchising as well as media, sports & entertainment.

We draw on the diverse practice and industry experiences of our people to satisfy the unique market needs of our clients.


Although our model requires that we focus on our clients through the prism of their respective markets, our suit of services are nonetheless essentially three-pronged, these being SOLUTIONS, RESOLUTION & INSTITUTIONALISATION.


This entails all levels of legal advisory services for the transactional needs of our clients, including: Legal Opinion, Legal Structuring, Legal Documentation, Regulatory Interface, Contract Negotiation.


This entails use of all resolution mechanisms from declaration of dispute to securing, in good value, of the fruit of the resolution for our clients, such mechanisms including:Litigation, Negotiation, Mediation, Conciliation, Arbitration, Other forms of Settlement/Composition, Execution


This is a response to the emerging global consensus on the requirements for institution building in a manner that guarantees long-term stakeholder value and strengthens the corporate organisation’s internal capacity to respond to the changing external environments of business operations.

Services provided under this rubric take account of emerging norms of business including industry standards and global corporate best practices, whether these have been incorporated into the law, compelled by regulations or remain merely a demand of the emergent global outlook.
