Our History

Our History

Since the establishment of our firm in 1987, we have been key advisors over the years to the government in fundamental cases that have developed the legal framework of Nigeria. In 1987, Izinyon & Co was based on Kogi State, Nigeria. In 1994, the firm was relocated to Abuja, the new Federal Capital of Nigeria.

Being one of the few key law firms in Abuja at the time, the law firm developed a reputation for providing solutions to the most complex and important assignments for leading companies, Governments, and high net worth individuals. In 1999, the Managing Partner, Dr. Alex A. Izinyon was awarded the rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria (S.A.N) as a recognition of the trailblazing nature of his work ethic.
