Firm tasks lawyers on integrity, analytical skills
Nigerian law firm, Perchstone and Graeys has charged lawyers who desire to be partners in a law firm to have the spirit of integrity and analytical skills.
The managing partner of the firm, Osaro Eghobamien (SAN), who gave the charge while addressing newsmen, said that the firm is looking for specialization and integrity.
His words: “We are open for the possibility of having partners join us or merge with us. We are looking for specialization and then we are looking for integrity, so if we see a firm that, maybe specialized in entertainment and we have two partners who could compliment us, we will be very happy to go into that set of thoughts. What I am looking for is hard work, integrity and specialization.
“Any lawyer who wants to partner with us must have to be able to analyze the economy and then translate it into his own sector. He must be extremely hard working and able to communicate effectively and exude confidence. He must have a practice area that he will use to engage wealth.”
Osaro added that the main challenge affecting legal services is the absence of soft and hard infrastructure.
“In Nigeria, there is a problem in recognizing the fact that there is need for continuous legal education, so that we can meet the needs of clients. We deliver services to our clients and those services are equivalent to services they are accustomed to receive anywhere in the world, so that means we really need to work hard,” he said.
Furthermore, the senior advocate tasks the government to connect capital market into infrastructure.
He said: “If you look in the capital market, you will see growth in the capital market, that growth is not translated into infrastructure, so it takes time and efforts building to connect the capital market to infrastructure. Government needs to put in all the structure in place to connect the capital market to infrastructure.”
