Who’s Who Legal, an independent international publication which features foremost legal practitioners in multiple areas of business law from over 100 national jurisdictions, has named AELEX as Nigeria’s leading law firm.
Prior to this year’s award, AELEX had won same award in 2009. This winning represents two out of the three times the award has come to Nigeria.
The essence of the publication is to act as a reference source in helping purchasers of legal services to reduce costs of finding a competent lawyer, corroborate the reputations of expert lawyers recommended to them by another party and to minimise the transactional expense and risk of receiving poor counsel.
AELEX partners chosen as leaders in their respective fields are: Arbitration – Mrs. Funke Adekoya SAN; Project Finance & Aviation – Mr. Fubara Anga; Environment & Oil & Gas, Mr. Soji Awogbade; Mining & Oil & Gas – Mr. Adegbite Adeniji.
The award comes just as AELEX is set to hold its 7th annual lecture series. The lecture will take place at the Agip Hall Muson Centre Onikan, today.
The fore-most Kenyan Anti-Corruption fighter, John Githongo will be the Keynote speaker. The topic of the event is “Corruption: The Thief in Broad daylight”.
