who we are and what we do
OLUSOJI ELIAS + COMPANY (COUNSEL)
a profile and statement of practice
We are a boutique practice, rather than a partnership, founded in the year 2006, with offices in the jurisdictions of Nigeria and England.
We have an aggregated post-qualification experience exceeding sixty years across a range of topical items in contemporary local and cross-border legal practice.
Our priority is to deliver at the highest quality rather than seek to manage an impersonably large quantity of clients, given our preferred format and size.
Our work is characterised by a distinct hands-on approach, and by originality and innovation, an ultra-modern outlook and an uncompromising rootedness in professional legal attributes and traditions.
We do 'rocket science' law, and are just as comfortable with incidental requests for our assistance.
Our clients include multinationals as well as individuals with interests in Nigeria, and local corporates, businesses and individuals, in sectors and activity-areas listed across this page.
We serve, for further example, as continuing consultants and advisors to the World Bank's Transparency and Accountability and Doing Business projects, have done for a few years. We also delivered on the Autumn 2009 Getting Electricity Report issued by the World Bank.
We have well-nurtured professional liaisons in most legal systems, and are able to service requirements as flexibly, productively, cost-efficiently and resourcefully as is possible.
Counsel set store by the multi-disciplinary international experience by which our advisory and professional teeth are cut.
We guarantee the quality of our conduct and throughput, our billing and our client care arrangements.
