Land acquisition is an involved and at times unpredictable undertaking given the multiple authorities and the communal land ownership systems in some parts of the country. We have used our experience in mass land acquisition to deliver a level of predictability and dispute-free acquisition for our clients. Noteworthy clients for whom we have carried out mass land acquisition and way leaves for include leading telecom companies, the national water utility company, the national electricity transmission company, the national motor vehicle inspection service concessionaire and large scale private sugar and palm oil agriculture concerns.
The firm has successfully handled claims for compensation of surface rights by project affected persons for large scale land acquisition. In addition, we have successfully litigated land disputes in the Supreme Court leading to the recovery of prime land by the state broadcaster, the social security fund and a prime city hotel group.
