Prince-Alex focuses his practice on international dispute resolution and the firm’s Africa desk.

Prior to joining Diaz Reus, Prince-Alex practiced litigation at one of Nigeria’s largest international law firms where he was a member of the core team responsible for the firm’s telecommunications related litigation. At the firm, he had experience acting in cross-border litigations, a scheme of arrangement and providing general advisory, for some of the biggest corporations from Asia and Europe operating in Nigeria. He also acquired experience interning at the Permanent Court of Arbitration/International Council for Commercial Arbitration at The Hague. And also, while working as a research assistant at the American Law Institute (ALI), on the ALI’s Restatement of the Law – The US Law of International Commercial Arbitration and Investor-State Arbitration (under the supervision of Professor Catherine Rogers).

Prince-Alex is published. His paper on image rights in Nigeria, published on, continues to be seminal on the subject, in the absence of a clear regulatory framework. And prior to joining Diaz Reus, he consulted on one of very few litigations on image rights in Nigeria. His 2018 paper “International Arbitration: Transnational Debate and Ethics Quagmire” – published in the peer-reviewed Transitional Dispute Management journal was listed by the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) in its bibliography of recent writings related to the work of UNCITRAL. He has also co-authored authoritative guides on arbitration in Nigeria for the International Bar Association and Practical Law respectively.

He was a founding co-chair of the Lagos Court of Arbitration -Young Arbitrators Network – where he pioneered the now annual LCA-YAN moot competition and worked in that capacity to return a Nigerian team to the Vis Moot competition.
