On March 20, 2017, the Honourable Minister of Interior (the “Minister”) Lt. Gen Abdulrahman Dambazau (retired), issued the Immigration Regulations 2017 (the “Regulations”). The key objective for issuing the Regulations is to create a legal framework for the implementation of the Immigration Act 2015 (“Act”)1 (Please refer to our article on the review of the Act) and a repeal of the Immigration Regulations 1963.

    We are delighted to announce the tenth-year anniversary of Bloomfield Law Practice (“Bloomfield”). From our humble beginnings, Bloomfield continues to grow from strength to strength in Nigeria and the global market. We would like to thank God for the Grace that has seen Bloomfield through the many years; starting as a dream to serve, to its current state. We would also like to thank our clients who believed in our desire to serve and gave us the opportunity to be their trusted advisors.

    Further, I would like to thank my partners, Ayodele Oni and Adedoyin Afun who bought into the Bloomfield vision and have injected a fresh drive to build an institution that would outlive us.

    Additionally, I would like to thank both the past and current legal practitioners and administrative staff that have helped to build Bloomfield in one capacity or the other.

    As we celebrate this wonderful milestone, our desire to act as trusted advisors to our clients is further regenerated and our hope is to leave an indelible mark in the African market, wherein the name, Bloomfield, is synonymous with excellence in provision of legal services.
