Aluko & Oyebode Joins ALN - Africa’s Leading Alliance of Law Firms

We are delighted to announce that Aluko & Oyebode has joined ALN – Africa’s leading alliance of law firms – making a bold statement about our modern strategic vision and our role in the transformational shifts happening in the way excellent legal services are delivered in Africa.

We are now ALN’s firm of choice for integrated legal services in Nigeria. Our decision to join the ALN alliance reaffirms our approach to how we see new opportunities, in the bid to help unlock value for our clients who are doing business and investing across Africa. This development is a crucial turning point for the firm as well as ALN. It significantly increases our response to clients’ needs and will enhance our capabilities and standing in the market. It also builds on the solid foundation that ALN has developed over the years for its pan-African offering. The alliance continues to offer a unique blend of global skills and expertise and local know-how, based on collaboration between leading African law firms, including Aluko & Oyebode.

 Kofo Dosekun, Chair of the Management Board, ALN Nigeria | Aluko & Oyebode commented: “The African Continent is an undeniably dynamic market and a springboard for real development opportunities for many domestic and international companies. Today, we are immensely proud to be part of the ALN alliance. With this joining of forces, we bring a tailor-made legal service to our domestic and international clients with a focus on meeting the highest international standards to support and secure their operations wherever they are operating.”

 Aluko & Oyebode is motivated by a vision to complement its robust domestic practice with the capability to service clients regionally. As such, and in recognition of the value that our clients have gained as a result of the firm’s deep knowledge of Nigerian law and its breadth of international expertise, Aluko & Oyebode strengthens ALN’s regional offering by providing greater access to a broader pool of specialist teams and resources. The pursuit of excellence by both Aluko & Oyebode and ALN is captured by the expectation of delivering legal services with the highest ethical standards, and enhanced by an ambitious entrepreneurial spirit.

Dr. Cheick Modibo Diarra, Chairman, ALN commented: “The addition of Aluko & Oyebode’s expertise and extensive experience into our fold means that clients can trust that we are an alliance that spans Africa and connects her to the world, that they can thrive in this evolving market and achieve their commercial objectives with ALN’s unique combination of local and international expertise, intellectual rigour, and agility on their side.”

Reginald Udom, Managing Partner, ALN Nigeria | Aluko & Oyebode commented: “As an alliance of integrated law firms in Africa, our people and their knowledge are critical assets in differentiating us from our competitors and in adding value to our service offering. Having Aluko & Oyebode join ALN is a major step in transforming Africa’s current legal services and a crucial turning point for the Continent. This decisive process significantly increases ALN’s influence and provides a solid foundation for the future development of our pan-African offering.”

The African Continent is an undeniably dynamic market and a springboard for real development opportunities for many domestic and international companies. As such, we are cognisant that Nigeria is the largest economy, and the most populous, not only in West Africa but across the wider Continent, accounting for 18.4% of total African GDP in 2021 – the largest share on the Continent. At ALN, we believe that investment into Nigeria and the wider Continent over the coming years will focus on the key sectors and opportunities that will define the Continent’s growth in the short and long term.

Rooted at a local level and doing business at an international level, we are ready to transform the way legal services are delivered in Africa; with the reach, expertise, and collaborative spirit to connect you to a network that spans Africa and beyond, and to play our part in your success.

We are ALN Nigeria | Aluko & Oyebode. We are One Region. One Vision. One ALN.
