Founder & Managing Director
Theo was admitted as a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of England and Wales on 1 April 2003. He was privileged to train at one of Gray’s Inn niche firms, after his Legal Practice Course at the College of Law, London Store Street. He read Law and Politics, graduating with LLB Honours in Law.
Throughout his career, Theo has ensured that he specialises in the whole field of civil litigation, drafting and interpretation of the contract, law of torts, medical negligence/personal injury, including land law-related issues, as well as a range of employment-related matters. In addition, he follows this through where appeals are pursued to the courts, in the County Court, High Court (Chancery and Queen’s Bench Divisions), Court of Appeal (Civil Division), Supreme Court, and the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR).
Although a Solicitor, he is also a passionate advocate. His collateral advocacy repertoire includes appearing on numerous occasions in the County Court, the First-Tier and Upper Tribunals (Employment and Immigration and Asylum Chambers), and before the High Court, in Chambers. The breadth of expertise Theo has ossified over the years can be seen from a small selection of his reported cases.

Theo’s international practice covers a wide range of international commercial contractual issues including a sale, supply and distribution agreements, structured finance, investment disputes, construction disputes.
He has acted for the various African States, notably, Adamawa State, Taraba State, and Niger State of Nigeria, in major banking disputes against four of Europe’s largest Merchant Banks, worth over £10b. These cases were settled out of court after proceedings were issued in the High Court, in the United Kingdom.
Theo was a joint solicitor in one of Europe’s largest class-action cases, involving over 250,000 victim claimants, in a case which undoubtedly represents Africa’s worse man-made toxic and ill-spills disasters yet. The value of the claim was in excess of £1b.
Theo has a few applications before the Supreme Court of England and Wales, in his attempt to advance very complex and nascent legal principles.
He has taken the following cases from the Court of Appeal to the Supreme Court:
