The assertion “Old age of Methuselah, has nothing to do with the wisdom of Solomon” has its validity in Kenneth. His mastery of Corporate Law is unparalleled and can only be compared by the clarity with which he renders such. I make bold to say that anything he does not know about Corporate Law in Nigeria, arguably is not worth knowing.

Kenneth’s deep appreciation and understanding of Corporate Finance and Corporate Restructuring is unrivaled. Also worthy of note is the ease with which he impacts knowledge with contemporary examples and relevant laws. He will be a real asset to any organization.
