Who We Are

Benchmac & Ince is a bespoke law practice established to meet the dynamics of modern day business and to deliver prompt, efficient and personalized services to our Clients. Our underlying approach is to identify clients’ needs and meet them professionally. With its Nigerian roots and world class ideals the firm is purposely structured along 3 service lines-Public Private Partnership and Infrastructure; Intellectual Property services; and Corporate Services.

Realizing that the massive potential of Nigeria to assume its role as a major player in global economy lies in the provision of an enabling environment and the requisite infrastructure, our focus has been hinged on bridging the infrastructure gap in Nigeria through our strategic advisory support in the provision of legal advisory services in this space to the Government of Nigeria and the private sector. We have built capacity in international contracts documentation and negotiations; infrastructure project finance and development; power project finance and documentation including , power plant turnkey construction contracts, EPC and O&M contracts, power purchase agreements and the necessary early termination guarantees (Put Call Option Agreements); corporate management and finance (including loan syndications, debt recovery, rescheduling, reconstruction and work-out, equipment leasing and asset financing), privatization and commercialization, mergers & acquisitions; divestments and corporate restructuring amongst others.

Key members of our Practice have spent over two decades in active legal practice in reputable firms and as consultants to transaction-based Federal Government agencies. Our firm, individually and as a member of transaction advisory consortiums have provided legal advisory services to the Government of Nigeria in key sectors for privatisation, divestment, commercialization and reform activities as well as various modes of Public Private Partnerships. Amongst others these include Electric Power, Health care, Transportation, Housing, Agriculture and Insurance.

This variety of experience and exposure affords us an added advantage of an extensive precedent base.
