IEL Elite


Highly regarded standalone team



Bloomfields employment department is a go-to for leading law firms elsewhere seeking assistance in Nigeria. Adekunle Obebe leads the practice from Lagos, which acts for Fortune 500 companies and high-net-worth individuals.


The specialised team supports clients with all conceivable labour and employment issues, from regulatory compliance through to workforce reductions and reorganisations. In particular, the team is highly specialised in corporate immigration and Nigerian work authorisation procedures.

The groups skillset extends to industrial relations, including resolution of strike actions and the negotiation of collective bargaining agreements.

Aside from acting for employers, the team is also able to represent individuals. For example, Obebe advised an expatriate on synchronising their global and local benefits package following their wrongful termination.
