To be eligible for the All-Academic distinction, an athlete must hold a minimum GPA of 3.00 in the semester leading up to the sports championship, have completed at least one full academic year in school prior to the current season, and participated in at least 50 percent of the team’s competitions during the last completed season.

Mall law firms were established in Nigeria before and after independence, but only a handful have survived to this day. These surviving chambers testify to the resilience of Nigeria’s business culture.

As the oldest accounting firm in the country established by Akintola Williams in 1952, these law firms have lived through three generations: Fredrick Rotimi Williams, Chuba Ikpeazu, Chike Idigbe, Richard Akinjide, Arthur Nylander, Bola Ige, Babatunde Dalley , Olaniwun Ajayi, Chike Ofordile and Iron Bar Orok.

There were dozens of pioneering law firms, whose status could not be determined by this report alone. Some of them include: Nebo Graham Douglas, Obafemi Awolowo, Babaremilekun Fani Kayode, Teslim Elias, Bankole Oki, EA Molajo, Gabriel Coker, Kehinde Sofala, Dr Nwakanma Okoro, Patrick Balonwu and Ben Nwabueze.

The others are Augustine Nnamani, Gabriel Onyiuke, Babatunji Olowofoyeku, HA Lardner and Professor AB Kasumu, FO Akinrele, Adebayo Ogunsanya, Okoi Arikpo, GRI Egonu and Bayo Kehinde, Mudiaga Odje and Olisa Chukwura.

Chief Fredrick Rotimi Williams Chambers (CRWC)

The CRWC was founded in Lagos in the 1940s by Chief Frederick Rotimi Alade Williams (FRA), Member of the Queen’s House (QC), as well as a Senior Solicitor of Nigeria (SAN).

The legal luminary (1920-2005) was a major defender of constitutional law. After his death in 2005, his two sons, Ladi Williams (SAN) and Folarin Williams, ran the business until the former passed away this year.

FRA and his son, Ladi, became the first father and son to be appointed Senior Advocates of Nigeria.

Some of FRA’s grandchildren, Alade and Kunle Williams, are partners in the law firm.

Speaking on the firm’s journey so far, Abimbola Akinjide-Williams, one of the late legal luminary’s grandchildren, recalled that he went through various challenges but continued in practice, with a new chamber founded from the former Rotimi Williams Chambers, known as the Black Table.

She said, “We continued the practice. The chambers had constitutional lawyers. My dad did campaign petitions, my grandfather sat on the committee that wrote the 1979 Constitution, which was amended, and the 1999 Constitution amendment.

“The handover to the next generation of lawyers has always been smooth. There is a lot more competition today than when my father and grandfather started practicing. The business is bigger and there are a lot more people in Lagos.

“Our major challenge has been the same as for all Nigerians: power and corruption. And when you ask foreigners to come to the country, it’s extremely difficult because it’s a hostile environment with uncertain government policies.

She said the law firm has been sustained all these years with a lot of hard work and specialization, adding, “The lesson for Nigerian lawyers is that partnerships are relationships between people. It may start as a one man show but later turn into a partnership so they can have more funds and other benefits. A partnership is a stronger model.

The firm’s practice covers multinational oil companies, manufacturing, telecommunications, pharmaceuticals, information and communication technology, finance, maritime and intellectual property.

Ikpeazu Rooms

This firm was established in 1946, with its headquarters in Onitsha, now Anambra State, by the late jurist Chuba Ikpeazu (QC), who later joined the bench.

Ikpeazu served as a judge between 1964 and 1983. He died in 2003 and his son, Dr. Onyechi Ikpeazu (SAN) inherited the firm, along with some of his grandchildren, such as Amaka Ikpeazu, a lawyer.

With 29 partners, the firm acts for clients in litigation, commercial transactions, telecommunications, banking, corporate law, real estate law, arbitration and legal drafting.

Punuka Lawyers and Prosecutors

The company was established in 1947 in Lagos. The name is derived from the Igbo word “punuka”, which means “to get out of the argument”.

It was founded by Chukwunweike Chike Idigbe, a renowned community leader and jurist from Asaba, Delta State, who also served on the bench, becoming a Supreme Court Justice in 1964.

He died in 1983, aged 60, and the firm was inherited by his son, Anthony Idigbe (SAN) and his grandchildren, including Isioma Idigbe, lawyer.

The 74-year-old firm is fully integrated and multifaceted, providing legal services to a very diverse clientele, with numerous partners and associates.

Akinjide and company

Akinjide and Company was established by renowned diplomat, educator and journalist, Chief Richard Akinjide (SAN) in 1955 in Ibadan, Oyo State.

The former President of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) between 1970 and 1973, served as Minister of Education in the First Republic and served as Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice in the Second Republic.

He passed away on April 21, 2020, and the company was inherited by Abayomi Akinjide and Jumoke Akinjide, while other children and grandchildren practice in the rooms or passed by.

Arthur Nylander Chambers

This was established in Lagos by Dr. Arthur V. Nylander in 1958 after his admission to the bar in 1958.

He was an academic and a diplomat, rising from lecturer to assistant dean of the Faculty of Law at the University of Lagos. He died on July 13, 2017, at the age of 89.

The firm specializes in commercial law, finance, arbitration, alternative dispute resolution, immigration law and intellectual property law.

His son, Leslie Olutayo Nylander, is a senior partner at the firm, while one of his grandchildren, Dideolu, is preparing to join the firm.

Asked to speak about the challenges of the law firm, Olutayo said that like every other business in Nigeria, Arthur Nylander Chambers had its challenges.

He said: “The law firm is also struggling with the cost of running the business on a day-to-day basis. For example, the cost of electricity has increased while supply has decreased. But we look forward to the new year with optimism.

Chike Ofodile & Company

It was established by a prominent community leader, Chief Chike Ofodile, in Onitsha, Anambra State in 1959.

The company is currently run by his son, Emeka Ofodile (SAN). His granddaughter, Netochukwu Ndukwe Ofodile, is also in legal practice.

Bola Ige and company

Chief Abimbola Ige (SAN) established Bola Ige and Company in 1961.

He was Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, as well as Minister of Mines and Energy between 1999 and 2000.

He was assassinated on December 23, 2001, at the age of 71.

The late legal luminary, affectionately known as Cicero due to his oratory power and ability to speak Nigeria’s three major languages, was also known for several controversial political and legal quotes.

The firm is led by his partner, Kolawole Esan, while his grandson and lawyer, Kayode, son of his daughter, Funsho Adegbola, inspires the firm.

GRF Dalley and partners

Babatunde Ganiyu Rasheed Dalley and Partners was established in Lagos in 1962. Since then, it has become one of the oldest and largest legal service providers in Nigeria.

The founder, Babatunde Dalley (SAN), is one of Nigeria’s most renowned jurists. Under his leadership, the firm overcame decades of challenges to provide legal solutions to local and international clients, from aviation to intellectual property.

The firm’s partners are Aderemi and Fatai Ajibola Dalley. Some of the founder’s grandchildren are preparing to join the firm.

Olaniwun Ajayi LP

This firm was established in 1962 by Sir Olaniwun Ajayi, who was also a Solicitor of the Inns Court of England, as well as a Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.

He was a community leader, legal and political scholar and the author of the books: The House of Oduduwa Must not Fall (2005); Lady Adunola Ajayi in Retrospect (2008); Nigeria, Africa’s Failing Asset (2009); Lest We Forget (A Memoire, (2011); Isara, Afotamodi, My Jerusalem (2011); and Nigeria, Political Power Disbalance: The Bane and Chain Down of Nigeria’s Progress and Development (2015).

He died in 2016, at the age of 91.

The law firm became a limited partnership under the leadership of his son, Professor Konyinsola Ajayi (SAN). In addition, his grandson, Folarinwa Ajayi, practices in the firm.

Orok Ironbar and Associates

Orok Ironbar and Associates was started in 1966 as Orok Ita Orok & Co by the late Chief Orok Ita Orok in Calabar, Cross River State.

Orok was a community leader and opinion leader in the former South Eastern State, which was later divided into Cross River and Akwa Ibom States.

In 1981, the Chambers name was changed to Orok Ironbar & Associates after Orok Ita Orok’s two children, Grace Ukpong (née Grace Ironbar) and Orok Inang Ironbar, graduated as lawyers.

The grandchildren – Orok Orok Ironbar, Effiom Orok Ironbar and Nkoyo Ironbar (née Nya) – are lawyers in the chambers.

The firm specializes in litigation, maritime, aeronautics, banking and finance, commercial etc.

Why Some Law Firms Fail – Lawyers

A lawyer, Obinna Onya, said good business practices and social responsibility with pro bono services are important for the survival of law firms.

“We have records seized by individuals for over 30 years; and even after the individuals died, the law firm continued and concluded the cases on behalf of their families, free of charge,” he said.

Emeka Nwadioke, a lawyer, told our reporter that the problem with Nigerian law firms is that they are not structured like businesses, so they struggle to grow organically. “The effect is that once the principal dies, the business folds,” he added.

According to him, the Chairman of the Public Interest Law Section (SPIDER) of the Nigerian Bar Association, Onyekachi Ubani, said that the lack of solid foundations and sustainable partnership is the cause of the failure of the law firms in Nigeria.

Another renowned lawyer, EMD Umukoro, identified the mindset of the founder of a law firm; management or administration of the business (where the business is run as a sole proprietorship); lack of planning; no transition tools or systems in place; no career plan for employees; poor financial plan and lack of financial discipline for staff, including the founder; business climate in Nigeria; bad mindset of most employees and society as being responsible for the demise of some pioneering law firms in the country.

Also speaking, Paul Erokoro (SAN) expressed his disenchantment with Nigeria’s overreliance on the service-oriented economy, which includes legal services instead of technology-driven industrialization that can accelerate national development.

“If we are not serious with science and technology, we cannot develop as a country. Every year, Nigeria produces thousands of lawyers, but they don’t produce so many scientists,” he said, adding that it does not matter whether a law firm has been inherited or not.

In a joint statement, the major chambers of commerce drew the government’s attention to the difficulties faced by their member companies and the private sector as a whole in obtaining foreign exchange to finance much-needed imports due to the current situation in this country. which concerns the lack of availability of foreign currency. currency.

Extracts from the declaration:

“The lack of availability of foreign currencies will affect maintaining the credibility of doing business with our suppliers and business partners with whom we do business in foreign currencies. At present, we are facing the difficulties of obtaining foreign exchange to finance the imports which we badly need due to the current situation regarding the lack of availability of foreign exchange.

“This ranges from the inability to obtain letters of credit to the inability to clear goods that have already arrived at the port due to delays in complying with letters of credit. This impact is also felt by indirect exporters and companies providing export support services. We are concerned that while the importers themselves face immense financial costs in the form of demurrage and other logistics-related costs, this will also affect long-established relationships with suppliers, resulting in loss. of serious and irreversible trust.

“Importers are also unable to secure orders due to the inability to agree on a firm payment schedule as required by suppliers. This will seriously hamper the availability of essentials, especially during the upcoming holiday season when consumer demand is generally high for most products. This can cause great hardship to the general public and lead to a significant increase in the cost of living.

“The banking system will also face difficulties from not being able to meet the needs of its long-standing customers and could potentially suffer a serious loss of reputation if they are forced to dishonor the payments incurred.

“The government will also suffer a loss of revenue due to lower import tariffs at a time when increasing government revenue is of paramount importance.

“While appreciating the efforts of the government to mobilize short-term financing from a number of sources through swaps and lines of credit, we urge the government to finalize negotiations on some of these agreements and to announce them with certainty as soon as possible. with a clear indication when such facilities will be available.

“If these actions envisaged by the road map recently announced by the Central Bank of Sri Lanka do not materialize on schedule, we urge the government to reconsider other alternative action plans available to the country, such as s ” engage with the IMF to explore the financing options they can offer.

“If these essential conditions for ease of doing business do not improve, we fear that many local companies will seek to relocate their business activities abroad. It will also seriously limit our ability to attract foreign direct investment (FDI) into the country.

“Therefore, we would like to urge the relevant government authorities to take prompt corrective action to avoid the negative consequences described above and put Sri Lanka back on track to build a strong post-pandemic recovery to achieve future prospects. prosperity and splendor as expected, ”the statement further noted. The declaration has been signed by the following institutions: CCC, FCCISL, CNCI, COYLE, ICC Sri Lanka, NCC, NCE, CCI and WCIC.

While here for a brief time, Isaiah Chambers left a lasting impression on Lake Charles.

Houston’s transfer defensive end also left an impression on opposing quarterbacks. This earned him national honors.

Chambers was named to the Associated Press Football Championship Subdivision All-America Football Team on Tuesday, a day after HERO Sports named Chambers to its third All-American team.

Two weeks ago, he became the eighth player in Southland Conference history to be named the league’s Defensive Player of the Year for the second time.

“I just want to go out there and do my best all the time,” Chambers said during the season. “The honors are great and I want to finish as one of the best in the country.”

Chambers earned a master’s degree in criminal justice last week.

“Isaiah came to work every day, regardless of the situation,” McNeese defensive coordinator Deron Wilson said. “He was one of the hardest working players in the team and he led by example. He shows up with the awards.

He is the first McNeese player to earn first-team AP All-America honors since running back Toddrick Pendland in 2008 and 2009 and the sixth multi-year player in school history. A consensus All-American in 2020 and America’s first-team preseason this fall, he recently finished seventh in voting for the Buck Buchanan Award as the nation’s top FCS defensive player.

Chambers led Southland with 10.5 sacks and 15.5 total tackles for loss this season. He led the league in the same categories in the shortened spring campaign.

Chambers pulled off a rare trick at McNeese, finishing with 18 sacks in 18 games.

“I was going,” Chambers said after getting a sack in the season finale. “I would have liked more.”

Chambers is the second McNeese player to win Southland’s Best Defensive Award twice, joining Terry Irving in 1992 and 1993. He also gave the Cowboys four consecutive SLC Defensive Players of the Year, following BJ Blunt in 2018 and Chris Livings in 2019.

LAKE CHARLES – McNeese outgoing defensive end Isaiah Chambers was named All-American in two different organizations on Tuesday, winning first team honors by The Associated Press and third team honors by HERO Sports.

The Houston native joined an elite squad two weeks ago when he became the eighth player in Southland Conference history to be named the league’s Defensive Player of the Year for the second time.

Consensus All-American in 2020, and the first All-American preseason team for this fall, recently finished seventh in the FCS Buck Buchanan Award vote as the nation’s top defensive player.

He is the first McNeese player to win AP All-American First Team honors since running back Toddrick Pendland in 2008 and 2009 and the sixth player in school history to join Pendland, Bryan Smith (2006 and 2007 ), Roderick Royal (2002 and 2003), Terry Irving (1992 and 1993) and James Files (1974 and 1975).

Chambers led the Southland Conference with 10.5 sacks and 15.5 tackles for a loss last season, marking the second consecutive year leading the league in both categories. He ended his two-year career at McNeese becoming the first player to average one sack per game in school history with 18 quarterback sacks in 18 career games played. He’s registered 10.5 of his sacks this season in the last eight games of the year.

Twice-selected to the first-team of all conferences, Chambers is only the second Cowboy player to be named the league’s top defensive player on multiple occasions (Terry Irving, 1992 and 1993) while also giving the Cowboys their fourth consecutive best conference defense award (BJ Blunt, 2018; Chris Livings, 2019; Chambers 2020 and 2021) and the 16th overall.

Chambers, who was invited to play in the Hula Bowl, recently received his master’s degree in criminal justice.
