Oluwaseyi (Seyi) joined the Firm as an Associate in February 2021. Seyi obtained her LL.B from Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile Ife with Second Class Upper Honours degree in 2018. She was called to the Nigerian Bar in 2019. Generally interested in general Corporate Commercial practice, she is an aspiring specialist in Intellectual Property Law, Real Estate Practice and Labour and Employment Law. The title of her 200 page OAU 2018 LLB thesis was ‘Introduction to Core Principles of International Humanitarian Law’.

Prior to LeLaw, Seyi completed her NYSC programme at an Ibadan law firm, where she was part of engagement teams that handled diverse civil, criminal and commercial disputes, and also participated actively in out-of-court settlements. Following her satisfactory performance, the firm retained her, but she wanted to move to Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial hub to further her practice. Whilst in Ibadan, Seyi became an active member of the International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA), which afforded her opportunity to play a part in FIDA’s human rights enforcement initiatives. Apart from her interest in legal practice, she is also a Human Resources enthusiast.
