Overview

A commercial litigator, Bola is passionate about the power of advocacy to streamline clients’ legal solutions.

Known for her indefatigable energy and ability to bring others to the table, Bola works closely with clients and colleagues in the firm’s Litigation & Alternative Dispute Resolution team to provide innovative solutions to solve complex problems. At every stage of litigation, Bola understands that part of advocacy is ensuring each client is a fully informed client. She gets to know clients’ unique goals in order to develop and present the most winning strategies and resolutions.

Bola is a first-generation student of Nigerian immigrants, and believes that making sure everyone has a seat at the table is a natural extension of her legal advocacy. She was the first Black individual to become Editor in Chief of a scholastic journal at her law school and held numerous other leadership roles. She’s also an active youth mentor in collaboration with Big Brothers Big Sisters.
