About the ALP Seminar series

The ALP Seminar Series was conceived as a forum to evoke discourse regarding practical, commercial and legal issues facing executives and decision- makers engaged in business in Nigeria. It was created by Akindelano Legal Practitioners in 2012 as a Corporate Social Responsibility initiative. It aims to stimulate innovative strategies and outline pragmatic solutions for the Nigeria economy.
Now in its Fifth year, we expect the seminars to strengthen existing synergies and help create new ones. The Seminar series is propelled by an advisory committee of professionals with diverse business expertise. The ALP Seminar series is now in its Seventh year and thus far it has tackled issues around Oil and Gas, Power, PPP Infrastructure and Agriculture.

Our Seminar Advisory Committee consists of:

  • Mr Omamofe Boyo – Oando Plc,
  • Mr. Ajibola Olomola – KPMG,
  • Mr. Kayode Akinkugbe - FBN Quest,
  • Mr. Oluyele Delano (SAN) - ALP,
  • Mr. John Delano – ALP.
