Our clients seek us out for our ability to blend forward-thinking advocacy and cutting-edge legal technology with a resolute commitment to superior service. Our pursuit of excellence never stops and is reflected in our many achievements.
Founded in 1980, we are a law firm for clients who seek the sophistication and capabilities of the world’s largest firms but want the personalized, human touch only available at a boutique Nigerian law firm.
From offices in the commercial centers of Lagos and Abuja, we provide world-class legal services to domestic and international clients. We use a team approach to deliver exceptional results in governance, transactional work, regulatory advisory, and dispute resolution.
More than 40 years after our founding, we remain guided by the simple yet profound values of Chief Wole Olanipekun, OFR, Senior Advocate of Nigeria and our firm’s namesake.
We feel compelled to excel. We will impress clients with tireless advocacy at every turn in the relentless pursuit of their objectives.
We take our clients’ issues on as our own, and always seek to deliver impassioned service, deliberate care and a commitment to success.
We act with honesty, truthfulness, virtue, and principle at all times to earn and maintain the trust of our clients and each other.
We are lifetime learners who thirst for knowledge. We use our knowledge and skill to help our clients lead, differentiate and adapt amid constant change.
The interest of our client is paramount. To this end, we will deploy our professional expertise, insight and creativity to achieve our clients’ legal objectives assiduously and ethically.
Our legal practice will continue to evolve with our clients and work to anticipate their needs, offer pragmatic solutions, and live up to our hard-won reputation as one of Nigeria’s leading law firms.
We have strategically set our offices in Lagos and Abuja to deliver high-quality legal representation to clients throughout Nigeria. Our lawyers travel between locations as needed to best serve clients.
Additionally, we offer convenient, secure technological solutions to meet with clients outside of our physical office space.
