Founding Partner (Retired)
Mr. Farotimi was called to the Nigerian Bar in 1999 and practised as a litigation and transactional lawyer.
He commenced his career as a litigation counsel in the law firm of Adesina Ogunlana & Co. He also worked at Bosa & Partners before joining the law firm of K. O. Tinubu & Co. At K. O. Tinubu & Co., he worked under notable legal luminaries such as the late K. O. Tinubu, B. R. Fashola, SAN, and Rasheed Oluwa before starting Dele Farotimi & Co. in 2002 (now DF Legal).
Under his leadership, DF Legal has provided transactional support services, title transfers, financing, and mortgage services to real estate developers, developing over five thousand housing units. This is in addition to cross-border, intellectual property, electricity, and finance transactions; and some high-profile litigation, which the firm has effectively handled under his leadership.
Mr. Farotimi retired from the practice in April 2018 and is now focused on public interest advocacy and writing.
