Posted on Mon 10 Jun 2024

In keeping with our tradition of rewarding excellence and continually staying ahead of the curve in shaping the future of legal services, we are pleased to announce the admission of Mr. Olamide Oshikoya and Mr. Tunji Adeyemi, to the firm’s partnership with effect from October 1, 2024.

We are confident that their elevation will further enhance our capability to continually provide excellent legal solutions and consolidate our position as a market leader across our various practice areas. The admission of the two new partners expands our firm to a 17-man partnership. 

Drawn from the Corporate, Securities and Finance and Shipping, Aviation and International Trade Practice Groups respectively, Olamide and Tunji both exhibit what we proudly refer to as the ‘B&I DNA’, having joined the firm as young fledgling lawyers and grown over the years to leading positions in their respective teams, coordinating some of the firm’s complex, groundbreaking and multijurisdictional transactions, as well as intricate domestic and cross-border commercial arrangements. We are confident that their entry will enhance delivery of quality services and improve client satisfaction.
