About Us

The phrase “SAIL” is an abbreviation for Specialized Advisory in Law and the cause for its adoption is hinged on the desire to offer the same services.

WHo we are

We are one of the leading pre-eminent law firms, with a significant depth and range of resources. As a single, fully integrated, global partnership, we pride ourselves on our approachable, collegial, critical thinking, and team-based way of operation. We strive towards distinct service and custom-tailored solutions beyond client expectations ranging from corporates from all the commercial and industrial sectors, governments, regulators, trade bodies, and Non-profit organizations. We provide the highest quality advice and legal insight, combined with global standard requirements coupled with in-depth local expertise.

Clients look at Sail Advocates, not for just legal advice or opinions but also custom-tailored critical solutions for business at different levels such as development, continuity, exit as well as Market analysis. This privilege has been maintained due to;

• Our distinguished desire to consider the interests of our clients first. We adopt critical thinking to yield realistic models to understand clients’ organizations, their needs, operating context, opportunities, and challenges.

• Our distinct desire to offer practical advice to clients. We draw on the huge range and depth of our expertise to develop commercial, effective solutions for clients.

• We pride ourselves in our team of professionals coupled with our wide consulting partnerships to generate solutions hinged teamwork for client satisfaction. We believe in the power of teamwork rather than individuals to secure successful outcomes as we bring together groups of people with the right combination of the sector, product, and jurisdictional knowledge.

How we manage our firm

We are a single profit-pool, lockstep partnership. Our ambition is to work collaboratively across geographies, practices, product areas, and sectors to deliver the best advice and support to our clients and to create a dynamic, rewarding, collegial environment for our people. Our governance aims to support this ambition.

The firm’s leadership is chaired by the firm’s Managing Partner who sets rolling the Firm’s strategy and oversees its implementation.  The effectiveness of the Leadership is reviewed by the Partnership committee or council, led by the firm’s Senior Partner.

The firm’s constitution is governed by our Partnership Agreement. This requires that certain issues are subject to a vote of partners, including the election of the Managing Partner and the Senior Partner.

Partners also vote on the admission of new partners, mergers or acquisitions, and other major investments, and changes to the Partnership Agreement itself.  Each partner has a single vote.

"Everyone at Sail Advocates is professional, knowledgeable and kind. I highly recommend this firm."
