Year Established:


Femi Sunmonu & Associates is a commercial law practice formed in Kano in 1993 and registered as a partnership the following year. The firm is an amalgamation of the skills and experiences its partners and associates have acquired from previous engagements at 7 diverse law practices, 2 Federal parastatals and the academia. Cumulatively, the firm’s 4 partners and 3 Senior Associates have in excess of 60 years post qualification/practice experience.

The diversity of backgrounds of the firm’s members strengthens our work as a team. Each member is adept at thinking laterally in proffering solutions to client circumstances. Though traditional practice values are not discounted, we nonetheless serve each client with candor, directness and simplicity. The firm serves its local and international clients from its own offices in Kano, Abuja and Lagos, through associated practices throughout Nigeria and in association with correspondent practices in Britain, the U.S., Canada, Brazil and Asia.

The synergies from these relationships are evident in the superlative quality of service the firm provides to clients without constraints as to geography, time or language. To maintain the collective and individual ability of members in providing clients with superior service, members of the firm are constantly in attendance at continuing professional education courses and seminars locally and abroad.

Our firm’s mode of practice has resulted in not only a steady and sustainable growth in our client base, our opinions and professional input into client business activity have become well respected and frequently sought after by foreign and indigenous clients drawn from (though not restricted to) the following economic sectors: Advertising, Banking and Finance, Construction, Energy and Solid Minerals/ Mining, Health Care/Pharmaceuticals, Maritime and Transport, Oil and Gas, Telecommunications, Textiles and General Manufacturing.
