Dr. Solomon Osagie

October 14, 2019

Dr. Solomon Osagie is a corporate lawyer with substantial in-house and private practice background. Solomon Osagie has legal experience and qualifications in Business and Law. He has a high premium on providing strategic and operational legal support in an international and multi-jurisdictional environment at senior/board level across a range of areas. Solomon who was born in Sheffield in July 1967, relocated to Nigeria at the age of 7 because his father took up a post as a regional manager of Philip Morris. He remained in Nigeria until 1990, during this period he read Law at the University of Benin between 1985 and 1988 and attended the Nigerian Law School between 1988 and 1989. He also did the Nigerian National Youth Service between 1989 and 1990. Solomon returned to England in 1990. Initially unsure what to do, he started working at the Lord Chancellor’s Department, becoming an executive officer only two months into his appointment. Allegedly the first black male appointed by the South Eastern Circuit Office, Solomon describes this period as: “Very interesting times as it was very novel for them to have a black male at the Lord Chancellor’s south eastern circuit office!” While there, he was encouraged by his manager, a Mr. Cook, to qualify as a solicitor in England. He soon left the Lord Chancellor’s Office for the London Borough of Newham and at the same time started his Common Professional Examination (CPE) at the Guildhall University, which he completed in 1991. He then did his Solicitor’s Finals at the College of Law, Store Street between 1992 and 1993. No sooner had he finished his Solicitor’s Finals, Solomon started his MBA at Greenwich University on a part-time basis in 1993, becoming one of the first Lawyer MBAs in 1996. On a roll in 1993, he also joined Hirschfield Solicitors, a medium-sized law firm in East London (which has now merged with Bowling & Co), where he was an Articled Clerk (Trainee Solicitor) between 1993 and 1995. He had obtained a six-month reduction from the two-year training period from the Law Society because of his previous work experience. This was the last post he held which he applied for, as he has been head-hunted for all subsequent posts held since qualifying as a solicitor in England and Wales. Upon qualification, Solomon joined Jay Vadher, a former partner at Hirschfield Solicitors who had set up his own practice, as the firm’s practice manager, doing a substantial amount of publicly-funded work initially in family and crime, then later on crime, welfare and housing law. But by the time he left the firm he was doing predominately housing and consumer credit law and some substantial commercial work. He was responsible for the Quality Mark (Legal Aid Franchise) in crime, family, personal injury, and welfare benefits and housing. He became the firm’s managing partner in 1999/2000 and also had a stint as a part-time guest lecturer at the London School of Economics in the late 1990s. Solomon left Jay Vadher to join one of his former commercial clients in an in-house General Counsel and Head of Legal role as he had “had […]
