Mo Olatuja

Head of Corporate and Commercial

About Mo Olatuja

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.

Client testimonials

“Sarah provides excellent advice, often off the cuff at the end of the phone when urgent matters arise. She is extremely good at explaining the intricacies of planning law in layman’s terms, which is very much appreciated. Sarah is a reliable and conscientious colleague who I do not hesitate to contact for guidance and clarity in often high-pressured situations. She is well respected amongst her peers and colleagues, and officers very much appreciate her knowledge and calming influence.”
Planning & Highways Client
“I am writing in praise of your support. As someone in the firing line of an ultra-aggressive legal team for the first time in my life, this was a traumatic and, at times, upsetting process. You were at my side, dispensing wise and calming counsel throughout. You have been readily available when crises occurred, have been a wonderful listener and, in the end, we reached an outcome that was highly satisfactory for our school and its pupils. I cannot speak highly enough of the way that you handled this case, and I thank you and your firm for the support you gave me. Being a chair of governors, sworn to confidentiality, can be a lonely business! You kept me sane.”
