Prominent Ibadan-based lawyer and chartered Arbitrator, Musibau Adetunbi, has been elevated to the rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN) by the Legal Practitioners’ Privileges Committee (LPPC).

He leads 70 others including 10 academics to attain the prestigious rank which carries a number of privileges in the legal profession.

The newly appointed “Silk” brings the number of members of the inner bar to 597.

In the list unveiled by the committee, Adetunbi was placed 57th among the successful applicants.

Recall that the LPPC had, on September 23, published a list of 137 applicants.

After making it public, the committee requested members of the public “to comment on the integrity, reputation, and competence” of the short-listed candidates.

The announcement on Friday reflects the final selection for the prestigious title in the legal parlance in the year 2020.

Adetunbi is renowned for winning complex and extremely challenging litigation cases in several areas of law such as banking, criminal law, election-petition, real estate, maritime, arbitration, customary law, law of tort and intellectual property.

His experience and expertise, however, is not limited to litigation; as he equally solves tasking non-litigation legal problems with ease of simple arithmetic. His passion in ensuring that complex legal problems are tackled with full commitment and dedication is excellent.

A graduate of the prestigious Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Adetunbi is a member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (UK), International Bar Association, as well as Commonwealth Lawyers Association.

In April 2019, the legal practitioner was kidnapped in Iwaraja, Osun State, on his way to the Court of Appeal in Akure, the Ondo State capital but regained freedom three days later.
