Labour and Employment

Your people are your organization’s most valuable asset, and like all valuable assets they must be skillfully managed. Doing so requires deep knowledge of Nigerian national and local laws as well as, in many instances, an understanding of cross-border legal and cultural factors. 


At Wole Olanipekun & Co., we provide employment and labour counsel that is focused not just on the law, but on your business and its people.

We handle employment and labour law matters for clients of all sizes and across all industries. Whether your company is internationally based and seeking to establish a presence in Nigeria or your business is based here, you can rely on our lawyers to guide you through the complex web of rules and regulations employers face.
