Banwo & Ighodalo is pleased to announce the admission of Mrs. Seyi Bella into partnership, effective from 8th January, 2018. Her entry further strengthens the Firm’s service offerings across various practice areas and brings the total number of partners to 12.
Seyi first interned at the Firm as a law student in 2004 and formally joined the Firm as a junior associate in 2006 and has since been a key member of the Firm’s Corporate, Securities & Finance Practice. She has extensive experience and provides advice on a broad range of transactions in Finance generally – including Project Finance, Corporate Finance – and M&A. Her core focus is on Banking and Secured Lending; and she advises local and international financial institutions, corporate clients and government agencies on local and cross border financing transactions, including diverse multi-currency deals.
Currently the youngest member of the partnership, Seyi’s entry brings the partnership’s gender mix to 50/50. She is incredibly hard working, smart, adroit and reliable, and is extremely valuable to the Firm and its clients.
Seyi comes with a Bachelor’s degree in law from the University of Lagos (2005) and a Master’s degree from the Harvard Law School (2008).
Having grown through the Firm, Seyi’s profile is entirely autochthonous and we are confident of her capabilities in providing the highest quality of legal services that our clients have come to expect from B&I.
When she’s not busy with legal work, mentoring younger lawyers or delivering presentations, you may catch Seyi enjoying a good movie or simply spending quality time with her young family.
