What we do

In Nigeria, by virtue of Legal Practictioners Act, unlike what obtains elsewhere and particularly in the United Kingdom, every Legal Practitioner is a Barrister and Solicitor. In Nigeria, once a person is called to the Nigerian Bar, he/she becomes barrister and solicitor of the Supreme Court of Nigeria.

As a result, at Olaniyi Arije & Co, we have highly competent and committed Solicitors, Advocates and Consultants who have the requisite expertise in all the major fields of Legal Practice in Nigeria.
