At Wole Olanipekun & Co, we have handled cases and complex legal issues of core national importance relating to Constitutional and Statutory Interpretation thereby, not only gaining sufficient experience and expertise, but also contributing to case law, national development and stability.
Our experience in this area of law has made us a prime choice of call when serious issues that require competent handling come up and we have been able to deploy our expertise to respond to such issues even where there are scant judicial precedents or case law thereon, and the determination of which formed locus classicus and averted serious constitutional crises.
