Gbenga Oyebode

Board Chairman

Described as one of Nigeria’s most prominent lawyers, Gbenga, the founder and Chairman of Aluko & Oyebode, holds over 35 years of experience in corporate and commercial practice, and he has been involved in the negotiation of complex commercial agreements for a wide variety of transactions. Chambers Global has called him a “consummate dealmaker who has received plaudits from clients and peers alike for his corporate expertise.”

With a background that includes an advanced law degree at the University of Pennsylvania, legal experience at the global law firm White & Case LLP in New York City, and an in-house position at the Gulf Oil Company (later merged with Chevron), Gbenga possesses a genuine and deep understanding of his clients’ needs in every sector and practice area. The same entrepreneurial spirit he brought to the founding of an elite, full-service corporate law firm in Nigeria is the same energy and dynamism he brings to his client matters.

Gbenga’s extensive experience includes advising several top-tier Nigerian, international and multinational clients on energy and natural resources, project/infrastructure finance, privatisation and telecommunications. He is currently advising on the Brass LNG project, a joint venture between NNPC, Total, ConocoPhillips and Agip for the construction of a US$3.5 billion liquefied natural gas plant.
