Themed “The Pros, Cons and Challenges of Establishing and Enforcing a Scale of Charges for Legal Services in Nigeria,” this year’s event proposes to address the burning issue of professional fees for Nigerian lawyers.

Since her maiden edition in 2008 with the theme “Globalisation and the Challenges of Practicing Law as a Business – a View from the West”, the S. P. A. Ajibade & Co. Annual Business Luncheon has grown to be an important part of the legal calendar.

This year’s event will be virtual and will include an essay competition with exciting prizes to be won, as well as opinion polls to assess attendees’ views, amongst other things.
