Glenn George testifies in high-stakes Nigeria v. P&ID trial

February 2023

Partner Glenn R. George testified at trial on behalf of the Federal Republic of Nigeria in Nigeria v. P&ID, an $11 billion matter in the High Court of England and Wales. The case involves Nigeria’s attempt to overturn an award made in P&ID’s favor in a prior international arbitration matter. Dr. George’s testimony addressed the financeability of an abandoned and allegedly fraudulent effort to fund and build a natural gas processing plant in Nigeria. The matter has garnered significant media attention, including in Bloomberg,[1] Reuters, Global Arbitration Review,[2] and various news outlets in Nigeria[3] and elsewhere in Africa. More information is available from the government of Nigeria.
