ROCKSON IGELIGE
(Principal Partner)


Rockson Igelige first obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Arts from the University of Benin before proceeding to take an LL.B from Delta State University, Oleh Campus, in 1999. He was called to the bar in 2006. His background in theatre and performance arts spurred his interest in intellectual property rights and in 2011 he left for the University of Westminster, London, for a Master’s in Entertainment Law. Igelige has emerged as a leading IPR advocate in Nigeria. Soon after joining with another Remedium Law Partner, Felix Ogbaudu, to form FELIX, IGELIGE & ASSOCIATES, he became a member of the team of four lawyers who sued MTN Communications Ltd in a landmark case for the infringement of the copyright of Omenuwoma Okson Dovie, a musician and entertainer, to four of his songs. Igelige is very active in litigation. He was retained in 2009, 2010 and 2011 by the Federal Ministry of Justice to represent Awaiting Trial Prisoners (ATPs) as part of the Attorney-General’s initiatives for prison decongestion and also to represent the President and Commander – In – Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Inspector General of Police in a Suit No. A/M/10/2010. He is co-founder and Secretary of the Board of Trustees of the Friends of the Creators Artistic Foundation (FCF), an award-winning NGO that promotes awareness of intellectual property rights in Nigeria. He has also written several articles on intellectual property, ambush marketing and entertainment law.
