I obtained my Bachelor of Laws (LLB) from the Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria in 2010. Between 2010 and 2011, I attended the Nigerian Law School and was subsequently called to the Nigerian Bar as a Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court in 2012. During my time at the law school, I interned at the shipping and admiralty law firm of Femi Atoyebi (S.A.N)* and Co and later joined the firm as an associate upon my admission to the bar.
In pursuit of my interests in the fields of shipping law, international investment law and energy law, I undertook and was awarded an LLM in International Commercial Law at the University of Birmingham in 2013. I afterwards worked at the law firm of Nathaniel Oke (S.A.N)* as an associate, with a focus in the fields of investment law, energy law, shipping and litigation.
