WTS Blackwoodstone was founded in 2017 as Blackwood & Stone LP, a globally minded law firm located in Lagos, Nigeria dedicated to the practice of specialized Tax and International Business Law. Considering the growth trajectory of the firm, it was important that the next stage of our growth involved becoming part of an international network and reaching a global audience, hence our journey to becoming WTS Blackwoodstone. The Firm has since grown into a multidisciplinary international business law and tax firm with offices in Lagos and Abuja and has global reach via the WTS Global network.
