I graduated in 1992 from Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria and was called to the Nigerian Bar in 1993. In 1998 I was enrolled as a solicitor of the Supreme Court of England and Wales and practiced until 2008 when I started legal consultancy. My areas of competence included business law, criminal defence and immigration and nationality law in which I gained specialist status.
In 2011, I obtained a Master of Laws degree in International Commercial Law from University of Surrey and started my research in Brunel in February 2012.
My research focuses on the development of Corporate Social Responsibility law and practice in Nigeria. This research is important to understand the import and effect of recent legislative reform and the impact it has on the increased foreign and local companies who are driving the growth in this emerging economy.
My research will interest any persons involved in forming or executing the corporate social responsibility policy of a corporation in Nigeria, and those that intend to invest in Nigeria. Lawmakers may find my discussion enlightening in formulating further reforms.
