Paul Usoro, SAN: A Commitment to the Welfare and Empowerment of Young Lawyers


Everyone that works is deemed worthy of his pay. This is pretty much an accepted fact in various circles; religious; professional and even in the most informal of settings. This much is apparent to young lawyers who seek to make a name for themselves in the legal profession. This is an issue close to the heart of Paul Usoro, SAN.


As a matter of practice and personal conviction, Paul believes in and is committed to youth empowerment, diversity and inclusion. A few life examples:

  • New hires in PUC being post NYSC enjoy six figures start salaries (minimum of N150,000.00) and are encouraged to tap into the sustainable growth scheme of the firm.
  • Young Lawyers benefit from the Firm’s annual Profit Sharing and Bonus schemes.
  • Of the 5 Partners in PUC, we will mention 2 partners to demonstrate Paul’s investment in the mentorship and growth of young lawyers:
    • Mr Muniru Liadi, a Litigation Partner progressed from entry level post youth service to the position of a Partner.
    • Mrs Adetola Bucknor Taiwo, a Transaction Partner joined PUC 2 years post call and made partner after 6 years in the firm.
  • Youth Corpers posted to the Firm take home a minimum of N50,000.00 monthly and Law School interns have a N20,000 farewell allowance.
  • For nine (9) years and counting, PUC sponsors the Lawyers’ Table Tennis Open (Mfon Usoro Cup), nicknamed the largest sporting event among lawyers. LTTO is a Table Tennis tournament open to lawyers from within and outside Lagos. Travel and accommodation cost for out-of-town lawyers are underwritten by PUC. Prizes include fully paid return flight ticket to the International Bar Association (“IBA”) Conferences and other attractive prizes for 2nd and 3rd positions.

Consistency in Supporting NBA and Nigerian Lawyers
It is notable that all the activities highlighted in this write-up predate Paul’s decision to contest for the presidency of the Nigerian Bar Association. His life and actions demonstrate consistency, propelled by genuine altruism. A visionary leader with the right temperament to unify all.
