The Firm

M.I. Jegede & Co. (“the Firm”) was founded over 30 years ago by the late Professor M.I. Jegede, SAN, after he retired from the Faculty of Law of the University of Lagos. The experience and expertise which he brought to bear on the matters handled by the Firm cannot be quantified and aided the establishment of the Firm as one of the leading law firms in litigation and commercial practice in Nigeria.

The Firm’s office is located in Yaba which provides easy access to the Courts in Igbosere and Ikeja respectively. The location is also easily accessible to clients. The well-equipped library and modern infrastructure aid the provision of innovative and prompt services to our clients.

Over the years, the Firm has developed extensive competence in Litigation/Dispute Resolution; Company Secretarial Services; Corporate and Commercial Law; Property Law; Wills and Administration of Estates; Privatisation and Corporate Governance; and Banking and Securities Law.

The Firm has been involved in a large number of commercial litigation matters and consistently delivers quality legal services. Its strength lies in a carefully selected team of dedicated and hardworking lawyers who continually strive to acquire more knowledge; improve their skills; and are the beneficiaries of the wealth of knowledge of the late Professor Jegede.

The Firm offers services to individual and corporate clients. Our corporate clients include Banks and Financial Institutions; Manufacturing Companies; and Construction Companies. We also offer our services to the Government at Federal, State and Local Government levels.
