MainOne was recently awarded the “Telecom In-House Counsel of the year” by the premier award body, ESQ Nigeria Legal Awards. Touted the biggest legal event of the year, ESQ Nigeria Legal Awards aimed to celebrate the outstanding work carried out in one of the most challenging years.
MainOne is West Africa’s leading connectivity and data center services provider. It is currently transiting to be owned by Equinix after a $320 million acquisition announced weeks back.
The company’s General Counsel, Abayomi Adebanjo who received the award expressed his delight with the recognition, saying, “Receiving the Telecom In-House Counsel of the year award is truly an honour and testament of the hard work the legal department continues to put in consistently. It means a great deal to us that the legal industry recognizes our work in MainOne and I am very proud of our incredible in-house legal team who made this possible.”
“The benefits of having a competent legal team is unquantifiable as MainOne would not have been able to effectively deliver services these past 11 years without our legal team. We celebrate this laudable award” states Tinuola Ipadeola, Head Corporate Services.
