My name is Mo Olatuja and I lead the Corporate and Commercial Group here at Invicta Law. I have 14 years’ of experience working within in-house local government legal teams and 5 years’ experience of working with and for local government alternative business structures.
I have in the past advised on infrastructure projects, the procurement of professional services, and the procurement of multi-million-pound goods, services and works contracts.
I also have experience in setting up and restructuring local authority owned companies to take advantage of Teckal procurement exemption and tax benefits and I significantly reduced a client company’s debt profile through introducing a debt management protocol for each service area.
I successfully reviewed and updated a local authority client’s constitutions to ensure governance and compliance with new legislation, delegated authority for shared services between neighbouring local authorities and assisted with the standardisation of corporate contracts.
I am an enthusiastic, organised and practical solicitor with the flexibility to tackle a wide variety of corporate and commercial legal work.
