Who's Who Legal Nigeria - Arbitration

Olufunmi, whose formative years and early education took place in London, England, was called to the Nigerian Bar in 1986.

She is a co-founding/pioneer partner of TRLPLAW and currently coordinates all facets of the firm’s operation. She is involved in foreign joint venture/partnership arrangements, business formation, negotiations, and high-profile arbitral and mediation proceedings locally and transnationally, on behalf of the firm’s most prominent clients, who include major corporate organisations.

A recipient of the much-coveted Judge Bola Ajibola Award for International Commercial Arbitration (2003), Olufunmi is a member of both the Nigeria and UK Chartered Institutes of Arbitrators and has served meritoriously as tutor in the former. She has since played a germane role in the establishment of ADR as a component unit of justice administration in all jurisdictions.

Olufunmi is a past chair of the International Bar Association (IBA) African regional forum. She currently serves on the IBA’s legal practice division and diversity councils, and as an adviser in its women lawyers’ interest group and African regional forum.

As a distinguished member of both the American Bar Association (ABA) SIL and the Nigerian Bar Association, Olufunmi fervently facilitated the emergence of the existing memorandum of cooperation between these associations in 2008.

She has held various high-ranking offices in both organisations. She is currently chair of the ABA SIL public international law (treaty) division 11, and senior adviser to the UN and international organisations committee, and the international refugee law committee.

Olufunmi is a life fellow of the American Bar Foundation (ABF) and the ABF ambassador to the ABA SIL.

She is also a life member of the International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA) and a member of the national executive council of FIDA (Nigeria).

WWL says: Olufunmi Oluyede has “extensive knowledge and understanding of arbitration law and a real knack for details” according to clients.
