About Charles Osuji – Osuji & Smith Lawyers:
Originally from Nigeria, Charles immigrated to Canada in 2011, shortly after getting called to the Nigerian Bar in 2010. In 2013, he joined Smith Law Office, a small law practice started by Jim Smith in 1980. With his energy and enthusiasm in the practice of law, he became a Partner in the firm, which was renamed Osuji & Smith Lawyers in 2016.
“As the founding Partner, Jim Smith ensured that the firm developed and retained a strong sense of community and focus on being friendly and approachable to all clients. Access to friendly and competent legal advice remains the cornerstone of our practice,” Charles says.
In 2017, Charles acquired the firm from Jim and became the sole owner and managing partner of Osuji & Smith Lawyers. Jim remained in the firm as his mentor until his retirement in 2019. “Since then, I have set my sights on growing Osuji & Smith Lawyers into one of Calgary’s top mid-sized law firm with a strategy of providing exceptional service at affordable rates with specializations in areas of most importance to the community – including Employment Law, Family Law, Business Law, and Real Estate. Osuji & Smith has won or been nominated for several awards due to its focus on excellence,” he explained.
Charles was recently voted as one of the top 25 most influential lawyers in Canada by the Canadian Lawyer Magazine among a plethora of awards and recognitions. His firm has also won the 2021 Top Choice Award for Business Services in Calgary and the 2021 Three Best Rated® award in multiple categories. And his excitement is clearly evident in his words, “It is a blessing to be rated, once again, on the prestigious Three Best Rated® on multiple categories including Business Law, Employment Law, Civil Litigation, Estate Planning, and Divorce Law. Our listing on Three Best Rated® is a confirmation that our focus on providing smart and compassionate legal advice to our clients is worth the effort.”
