Some names ring a bell or two in every profession due to their blaze trailing records and achievements. For legal luminaries in Nigeria, Senator Udoma Udo Udoma is one such name. Beyond attaining the height of his legal career, Udoma has served on different boards and committees for the government and the people.
Born on February 26, 1954, Udoma spent his early years in Lagos, Nigeria. He started his early education in Lagos, attending Corona School, Ikoyi, from 1962 to 1964 before moving to Uganda, where he completed his primary education at Nakasoro Primary School, Kampala. He returned to Nigeria and attended King’s College, Lagos, for his secondary education from 1966 to 1972.
He then proceeded to bag a B.A. (Law) degree, and a B.C.L. degree in jurisprudence from St. Catherine’s College, University of Oxford. He obtained another B.L. degree at the Nigerian Law School before he was called to the Nigerian Bar in 1978.
In 1983, Udo Udoma collaborated with Belo-Osagie to found a commercial law firm – Udo Udoma & Belo Osagie – a firm which is now one of Nigeria’s oldest and largest commercial law firms. Udoma Udo Udoma is a Senior Partner of Udo-Udoma & Belo-Osagie. Even after taking a break to serve in public office, he returned to give the firm his full attention.
From humble beginnings, the firm would later expand to offer a wide range of services across several sectors. UUBO has a work portfolio in energy, healthcare, technology and real estate sectors, banking and secured credit transactions, structured Finance, refinancings, Islamic Finance and regulatory matters in the banking sector.
Udo Udoma & Belo-Osagie is now a multi-specialisation full-service corporate and commercial law firm with offices in Nigeria’s key commercial centres. The firm’s corporate practice is supported by a company secretarial department, Alsec Nominees Limited, which provides a full range of company secretarial services and a sub-firm, U-Law which caters exclusively to entrepreneur, SME and MSME startups and growth businesses across several industries, including the FinTech industry.
