NBA Lagos Branch Holds Monthly Meeting, Celebrates New Silks
On Monday October 14, 2019 at the iconic City Hall on Lagos Island, the NBA Lagos Branch held its monthly meeting at which 11 of its members who were recently conferred with the rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria were honoured.
The meeting which was sponsored by the immediate past Chairman of the NBA Section on Business Law, Mr. Olumide Akpata, also featured a Knowledge Sharing Session, during which highly acclaimed Entertainment Lawyer and founding Partner, Technolawgical – Oyinkansola Fawehinmi (popularly known as Foza), gave an insightful lecture on “Opportunities in the Media & Entertainment Space for the Nigerian Lawyer.” In her Lecture, Foza while highlighting the opportunities also dwelt extensively on the challenges inherent in this relatively nascent area of legal practice and provided very useful tips on how to surmount these challenges in an effective and ultimately profitable manner.
Immediately after the Lecture, the Branch Chairman, Mr. Yemi Akangbe formally introduced members of the branch who were recently elevated to the prestigious rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN). These are: Ebun Olu-Adegboruwa, Godwin Omoaka, Doyin Rhodes-Vivour, Olumide Aju, Adedokun Makinde, Olaniyi Olopade, Segun Fowowe, Leslie Arthur Nylander, Emmanuel Adeyeye Oyebanji, Chimezie Victor Chikwem and Olatunji Abiodun.
The Chairman congratulated the Learned Silks on their admission into the Inner Bar, calling their elevations a well-deserved reward for their professional excellence and commitment to the finest ideals of the noble profession.
The new Silks were later hosted to a lavish Cocktail Party which was also sponsored by Mr Olumide Akpata who was commended by the Branch Chairman and other members present, for his steadfast and unrelenting support of the Branch and her activities.
