      As a US based law firm, we needed a Nigerian Attorney to help us protect our client's intellectual property. A disgruntled former employee in Nigeria was holding himself out as our client's partner and entering into contracts with people. We searched online and partnered with Vassalcrest Attorneys. Their distinctive way of handling this case was all we needed in a Nigerian legal partner.


        We have a retainer agreement with Vassalcrest Attorneys. They draft and review all our contracts. We chose them as our lawyers in 2019 when they helped us beat a 55 Million Naira law suit. I will gladly recommend them over and over again.
