Odujinrin & Adefulu

Our Story

A Legacy of Excellence

Odujinrin & Adefulu is one of Nigeria’s oldest and most esteemed law firms. The firm was founded in 1973 by two brilliant legal minds, Chief Oladipo Odujinrin and Prince Adeyemi Adefulu, who both shared a passion for the law and a burning desire for academic excellence.

A Vision That Defied Conventions

Odujinrin & Adefulu wasn't conceived as just another law firm; it was a response to a need for innovation in a traditional legal environment. At a time when legal practice in Nigeria was divided into advocacy/litigation and commercial law specialties, our founders envisioned a holistic approach that would seamlessly blend both under one roof. The goal was simple: to deliver a comprehensive legal service that transcends conventional boundaries.

The Important Ingredient

“Back then, partnerships did not survive,” Chief Odujinrin reiterates, “it did not matter if you had formed a partnership with your friend or brother; it ended up failing and ruining the relationship”.

How then did Odujinrin and Adefulu form a bond that spanned five decades?

“A partnership is like a marriage”, they both said. “You need trust, honesty and mutual respect for one another.”

When Odujinrin & Adefulu was formed, both men had experience in two different subsects of the legal profession. This allowed each partner to bring valuable expertise and opinions into every decision.

“Shared values and total honesty, that is the only way a partnership can survive,” Prince Adefulu.
