Year Established:


GEORGE IKOLI & OKAGBUE was established purposely in direct response to the dynamic challenges of a growing and expanding economy such as Nigeria’s.

Expanding on that vision, the firm has witnessed tremendous growth primarily as a result of it’s unparalleled professionalism evidenced by timely delivery of quality services at competitive rates. The attainment of this remarkable position has been facilitated by the right mix of acquisition and organic growth.

The Partners bring with them vast and varied experience drawn from their different areas of specialization, and have handled amongst others, some of the more notable transactions in Corporate Nigeria.

The vision and need to provide a wide integrated range of specialists who are able to constantly focus, adapt to change and achieve the desired results for both local and International Clients has been pivotal to the continued success of the firm.

Other critical success factors are namely: our standard of excellence in client service, the quality of our legal expertise, our innovative and commercial approach to the solution of client’s problems, the combination of efficiency with cost effectiveness to attain the optimum result and our expanding international dimension based on a network of overseas correspondents for whom we provide the best combination of local legal and commercial knowledge.
In addition to this, the firm is equipped with up to date Information Technology Systems.

Fifteen Principal members of the firm operate in five specialist departments. The firm is the only member for Nigeria in the International Lawyers Network and scored a Continental first by being appointed in 1997 as the first legal counsel for the AFRICAN PETROLEUM INSTITUTE established in Cape -Town, South Africa, a position which we still hold.
