Perchstone &Graeys, a commercial law firm with a practice of highest values of leadership, integrity and client service, has elevated two of its senior associates to partnership, amid other key elevations within the firm.
At a private ceremony on February 1, 2018, the firm’s management announced that, acting in concert with its external consultants, Shan Consulting Limited, the board of partners had approved a new structure for the firm, to take immediate effect. This includes the two new entrants to the partnership board, Mr Ugochukwu Obi, and Miss Elisabeth Ekpeyong. The new partners, we gathered, will oversee the firm’s ICT, and exotic financing & capital markets desks respectively, while assuming greater responsibility for the firm’s ongoing expansion.
As part of the firm’s restructuring, it also announced the creation of new management level positions. According to a statement, Mrs. Ifedayo Iroche, who was in charge of the employment and company law desks, has been elevated to take charge of chambers and practice development (Lagos Office ). Mrs. Bukola Oyinlola-Anuwe, the head of chambers (Abuja ), also merited an expansion of her position to include responsibility for practice development in the firm’s Abuja office. Mrs Iroche and Mrs Oyinlola-Anuwe will be primarily responsible for the firm’s practice development in their branch location, said the statement.
Other key promotions at the firm, we heard, were also announced for associate, intermediate senior and senior associate cadres, along with an increase in remuneration across board.
