Carousel0 comments

Osaro is one of the Founding Partners of Perchstone & Graeys. He is also the Managing Partner of the firm and currently leads its Dispute Resolution and Banking & Finance Group. He was admitted to practice in England and Wales in 1989 and later admitted to practice in Nigeria in 1991. He is renowned for the depth of his knowledge of the law and has, over the course of his career, distinguished himself in a string of notable cases.

Over the course of his career Osaro has been opportune to develop competence in various specialized fields, including Oil & Gas, Maritime, Intellectual Property, Bankruptcy & Insolvency, and Constitutional and Electoral matters. This has resulted from his having worked in a few renowned firms before putting up practice in Perchstone & Graeys. His diverse and robust background therefore gives him sufficient experience required to proffer dynamic and flexible advice to clients, particularly with respect to contentious and non-contentious legal issues. His ability to render useful and practical advice on matters ranging from Oil & Gas, to Constitutional matters and banking and finance, is a rare quality that clients often find extremely refreshing, particularly with respect to the nature of their requirements in today’s complex business world invariably cutting across multiple sectors.

In recognition of his diligence, passion and contribution to the legal profession, he was conferred with the prestigious rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria in 2008. On account of his extensive experience in dispute resolution in commercial matters particularly as it pertains to Banking & Finance, he was inevitably appointed to lead a team of lawyers to develop the Banking & Finance practice group in the Firm, which is now acknowledged as one of the best in the industry. He was a member of the Lagos State Trust Law Reform Committee and is a member of the Mortgage Implementation Committee of the Financial System Strategy (FSS 2020). He also participated in the review of pending Bills in the financial sector which was organized by the Project Management Office of the FSS 2020 and serves as chairman of the sub-committee set up to review the proposed amendment to the Asset Management Corporation Act and the proposed Bill for a regulatory framework for Securitization and Asset Backed Securities on behalf of the Legal Implementation Committee.
