“Afam Osigwe, SAN Advocates for Equitable Remuneration: A Call to Action at the Nigerian Bar Association Abuja Branch Meeting”

On the 2nd of February 2024, at the Nigerian Bar Association Abuja Branch meeting, Afam Osigwe, SAN, addressed fellow lawyers on the imperative of collaborating with the Remuneration Committee of the Nigerian Bar Association, of which he serves as chairman, for the effective implementation of the Remuneration Order 2023.

This order aims to standardize the compensation of lawyers for their legal services. In his impassioned speech, Afam underscored the pivotal role lawyers will play in ensuring the robust execution of the order, declaring unequivocally that the era of meager stipends for legal services is now a thing of the past.

For Afam, his committee stands prepared to embark on a protracted journey toward ensuring fair compensation for lawyers. He emphasized the need for lawyers to become advocates for this new legal regime on remuneration, thereby compelling clients to adequately compensate lawyers for their services. Afam highlighted a critical shift in perspective, where professions like property agents historically commanded higher fees than lawyers for similar transactions. He proclaimed that such disparities in compensation are now obsolete in the evolving legal landscape.

This comprehensive address reflects Afam’s dedication to revolutionizing remuneration practices within the legal profession and his unwavering commitment to securing just compensation for lawyers.
