Principal attorney at LeLaw Barrister and Solicitor Afolabi Elebiju has won multiple accolades at the 2024 Corporate International Awards owing to his excellent representation of clients in a variety of industries. Afolabi received the awards for Nigeria’s Commercial Lawyer of the Year, ESG Lawyer of the Year, Regulatory Lawyer of the Year, and Tax Lawyer of the Year. The recognition came as a result of his efforts in pushing the frontiers of excellence as well as contributing to the growth of the legal industry.
Corporate international annual awards mark excellence for the world’s leading advisers and financiers in an array of countries and continents around the globe. Running since 2018, the awards commemorate those who have been successful over the past 12 months and who have shown excellence not only in expertise but in service. The organizers claim that each award underwent extensive investigation by separate editorial and research teams.
Commenting on the honors, LeLaw barristers and solicitors in a media post stated that they are delighted, surprised, as we are humbled because Corp INTL conferred these awards based on their independent research. The legal firm noted that they had no inkling at all, that these were in the offing.
The statement reads in part “Quite interesting because – for lack of a better word – 2023 was an ‘interesting’ year, but looking back; we just thank God for His mercies, the One that (despite challenges), crowns our Year with His goodness”. We are grateful to all those in the marketplace, who provided the positive feedback to Corp INTL which made them announce our Principal as the winner of these 2024 Awards for Nigeria in respect of our 2023 work and discourse”.
