Recognized as one of the “top 40 under 40” lawyers in New York by the National Black Lawyers in 2019, Bola Awujoola has advised and represented corporate entities and individual clients at various levels of the dispute resolution process. While starting as an in-house counsel for a global corporate services firm, based in Lagos, Nigeria, where he counseled corporate executives and administrators on numerous legal issues, including tax law, regulatory compliance, contracts, and commercial transactions, he has in more recent years focused on providing counsel and representation to clients at all stages of workers’ compensation litigation — from intake to trial and appeal. Thoroughness and passion are the hallmarks of Bola’s litigation approach. An approach he has refined in his years of practice at all levels of the Nigerian court system.
Bola’s span of experience is extensive and his scope of knowledge is considerable. He graduated with Merit (magna cum laude) from Swansea University, Wales where he earned his Master’s in International, Commercial and Maritime Law. He also holds a Bar Qualifying Certificate from the Nigerian Law School and a Bachelor of Laws (LL.B) from Olabisi Onabanjo University, Nigeria.
Bola is a member of the Nigerian Bar Association.
