Tobenna Erojikwe, Chairman of the NBA-ICLE, announces a 7-day training on debt recovery and asset tracing

The Nigerian Bar Association Institute of Continuing Legal Education (NBA-ICLE) is set to host a comprehensive 7-day training course on debt recovery and asset tracing, as announced by Tobenna Erojikwe, Chairman of the NBA Institute of Continuing Legal Education (NBA-ICLE). The training, scheduled for March 19–22 and 25–27, 2024, aims to equip NBA members with the necessary knowledge and practical skills to effectively handle debt and asset recovery matters.

According to Erojikwe’s announcement, debt and asset recovery instructions are recurring tasks that lawyers frequently encounter in their professional practice. These instructions can sometimes be complex and onerous due to various factors, such as the intricacies of underlying transactions, the cross-border nature of debts and assets, uncooperative parties, and recalcitrant debtors or creditors.

The 7-day course, coordinated by Dr. Kubi Udofia, will cover a wide range of topics, including a step-by-step guide to dealing with debt recovery instructions, effective use and challenge of injunctions and freezing orders in debt recovery litigation, strategies for settling debt disputes through mediation and negotiation, efficient use of garnishee proceedings and receiverships for debt recovery, and strategies for efficient asset tracing and cross-border debt and asset recovery.

The training will feature a distinguished panel of highly experienced and knowledgeable experts, including Dr. ‘Kemi Pinheiro OFR, SAN; Edward Cumming KC; Tom Stewart-Coats; Boma Alabi OON, SAN; Seyi Akinwunmi FBR; Dr. Elachi Agada SAN; and Mrs. Abimbola Akeredolu SAN. Additionally, a panel discussion with Mr. Chidi Ekezie, Group Company Secretary and Country Head of Legal at Stanbic IBTC Holdings Plc, and Ms. Temitayo Adegoke, Company Secretary and Group Chief Legal Counsel of Sterling Financial Holdings Company Plc, will provide valuable insights into clients’ expectations regarding debt recovery instructions.

Erojikwe encouraged all NBA members to register for this “all-important course” through the provided registration link:

The NBA-ICLE’s initiative aligns with its resolve to promote continuing professional development, build capacity, and expand the practice areas of its members, ensuring they stay up-to-date with the latest developments and best practices in the legal field.
