Some of the notable cases Dimeji has been involved in are highlighted below:

  • A member of the team that successfully represented Gaslink in Gaslink Nigeria Ltd. v Reliance Textile Industries Ltd.
  • A member of the team that successfully represented a multinational oil corporation over an OML ownership dispute worth US$400 million. This case serves as the most authoritative in Nigeria presently, on the principle that ministerial consent is required before a transfer of shares in an oil company can become effective.


  • A member of the team that recovered N16Billion on behalf of Access Bank in a highly controversial multijurisdictional dispute against a Nigerian oil and gas company. The dispute involved multiple complex cases: eight (8) in Nigeria and a few others spanning over a number of jurisdictions including the United Kingdom, Greece, Netherlands and South Africa.
  • A member of the team that successfully represented the immediate past Group Managing Director of a tier one bank and the current Group Managing Director of the bank in a suit against the Financial Reporting Council of Nigeria (“FRCN”). The suit challenged the statutory powers of the FRCN to investigate issues of mergers and acquisitions and other business combinations and in particular the acquisition of IBPLC by Access Bank. This case firmly affirmed the statutory position in Nigeria, that only the Central Bank of Nigeria has the power to regulate or review acquisition of banks by other banks or to regulate banking transactions.
  • A member of the team that successfully defended Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) in arbitral proceedings against the Lagos State Government over a Barge Power Purchase Agreement and Contribution Agreement
