Our History

ACAS-LAW was established in April 1991 as a partnership by its two founding partners, Sola Adepetun and Afolabi Caxton-Martins, under the name "Adepetun & Caxton-Martins", to provide professional legal services as a corporate and commercial law firm.

Following the admissions of Funke Agbor and Felicia Kemi Segun into the partnership in 1993 and 2000 respectively, the name of the firm was changed to "Adepetun Caxton-Martins & Agbor" in 1993 and "Adepetun Caxton-Martins Agbor & Segun" in 2004.

In 2007, Taiwo Afonja and Ben Unaegbunam were admitted as partners. Chisa Uba and Donna Obaseki-Ogunnaike were admitted into the partnership in January 2015 and, most recently, Fred Ntido in August 2017.

Our philosophy at ACAS-LAW is to strive to add value to the transactions on which we work by being more than just providers of legal services but also considering ourselves client partners and embracing and exceeding our clients' expectations.
