Asafo & Co. is boosting its London office with the recruitment of Weyinmi Popo who joins the team as Managing Partner. The London office hire is evidence of our commitment to build a strong London office and our ability to attract top talent.

Weyinmi Popo is joining Asafo & Co. London from Akin Gump.  With over twenty years’ experience, Weyinmi’s practice focuses on private equity and M&A. He has worked extensively on cross-border transactions involving a broad range of countries in Africa and internationally, and he is a native of Nigeria.

Weyinmi’s addition to Asafo & Co.’s international private equity/M&A team, already known for its leading position in Francophone Africa, will significantly expand the firm’s capabilities in Anglophone Africa. His vast experience of Nigeria and English-speaking ECOWAS countries, along with the natural synergies between the London practice and the firm’s teams in South Africa and Kenya, will give the needed impetus to escalate Asafo & Co.’s Africa-wide M&A and private equity practice.
