Labour and Employment Law

"The constitution is the ultimate custodian of social will and its making should be accorded all due diligence"

What we do


Our firm represents clients in resolving workplace disputes, including compensation and benefits claims. We also provide comprehensive legal support in designing and implementing workplace policies in keeping with prevailing labour laws and industry best practices. As a global force in specialised employment law practices in Nigeria covering all aspects ranging from non-competition and dismissal to harassment and data privacy, we are the go-to firm for corporates and C-suite individuals looking to navigate Nigeria’s increasingly involved employment landscape, acting for both local companies and multinationals in advisory, transactional and contentious employment work.

Mode and Litigations

Millhouse Legal Advisory is one of the leading employment litigation defense firms in the Nigeria.  We have represented employers in tons of employment cases including sexual harassment, dismissal, and retaliation.  We represent employers in both class actions and cases brought by individual plaintiffs.  Although we are proud of our trial record, our primary goal is to dispose of cases by dispositive motion.  Our track record of consistently obtaining defense verdicts is well-known among members of the Nigerian Bar Association, which we believe substantially reduces the cost and amounts our clients pay in settlement.

Support Legal Services

We also recognize that sometimes our clients’ best interests are served by settling cases, and our trial record in employment cases enables us to reach favorable settlements for our clients. This would entail us to act as solicitors and barristers rendering legal services to your clients. The projectable legal services are:

  • Due Diligence
  • Searches
  • Perfections of Documents
  • Advisory and consultancy
  • Risk Identification and Legal audit
  • Taking Correspondences
  • Representations
  • Securitization
  • Regulatory
  • Legal Advisory
