As industries move towards a more global mindset, more and more companies are looking to do business that transcends borders. As a result, globalization has allowed several countries to thrive and join the world stage in expanding industries. Africa is one such part of the world that has experienced an increase in growth and development over the past few years. And when stakeholders begin to engage in business in foreign countries, they need to take the laws of that country into account. Kayode Akinsola, the founder and managing partner at Queens Attorneys, has been instrumental in providing legal services for business entities in Africa and other continents.
Kayode Akinsola is one of the top business lawyers in Nigeria. The foundation to his success has been his commitment to his education and further studies.

This lawyer then enrolled in the Nigerian Bar to practice as a solicitor and advocate to the Supreme Court in Nigeria.
