Who We Are

Brown, Okeke & Kalejaiye, is a full-service commercial law firm which uses innovative and cutting edge thought process to solve our clients’ biggest issues. We pride ourselves in being not just another law firm, but a first class law firm, delivering first class legal services to our clients. Established in 2015, we were created with a singular purpose that defines our very existence: client-focus.

Our Core Values


At BOK Legal, we are passionate about producing high quality work that speaks volumes about our organisation. Hence we are fostering a culture of excellence in all our projects, to ensure we keep producing, when it matters. Every BOK Legal staff and vendor is tutored on developing a growth mindset rather than a fixed mindset; to encourage us that we can always do even better.


Our first core value is our responsiveness, and this is key to providing superb service. The importance of understanding our clients’ needs cannot be understated. We all feel the need to be heard and supported. Simply recognising the humanity in each person that we have contact with, and treating everyone with respect and kindness, is at the heart of this value.


We will always do what is right, moral and ethical. We take responsibility for our actions, inactions, and the impact they have on each other, our clients and the world at large. This means always considering how our actions will impact the success of a brief and the client as a whole.

Client Centric

We recognise that our clients are the reason for our success in business and we are 100% committed to listen and respond positively to their needs.

Team Work

Teamwork is really the name of the game at BOK Legal. Setting up efficient systems, where roles and tasks are clearly defined, is the first step. Beyond that, we place a high emphasis on open communications, and strive to support each other and remain flexible. Sometimes we need to ask for help; other times, we can offer to help others. Sharing experiences and knowledge benefits the whole team, as does identifying and celebrating each person’s strengths and contributions
