Hey AML people, Happy Friday! I honestly must say it is daunting responding to the amount of emails I receive. While I appreciate every one of them, I find when I block out the time to review and respond to them, a lot of them tend to be quite repetitive. So, to make it easier on me, for the benefit of all, and to provide an easy reference link for future questions, I am reviving the “Ask Ms.Uduak” column where you get to ask me your burning questions and I answer them.
Kinds of Questions I Prefer
Basic fashion, film, music, business, intellectual property (copyright & trademark), media, public relations and law questions are welcome.
As you already know, this does not in any way mean I am your lawyer or that we are business partners, or have any kind of business or legal relationship whatsoever. Please read the disclaimer in the footer of this website. My services (legal and non-legal) are paid and are provided once I have had the opportunity to have an actual consultation with you to determine what your issue is and if we are compatible in working together. The Ask Ms. Uduak column is for informational purposes only, as is all the content on this site.
Africans, I find, especially Nigerians, do not seem to understand this distinction. Simply put, if you seek to retain my services because you need a lawyer, then contact my office during business hours, even if you “know” me 🙂 and make the appropriate appointment for a consultation.
Who Should Ask?
Industry folks across Africa’s creative industries i.e. fashion, film, music , tech companies in the creative space both on the continent and in the diaspora.
Will Your Name Be Made Available Publicly When You Send in Your Questions?
No. I typically publish a first name and the city and country where the questioner originates. In the alternative, I just use the first and last initials, and the city and country that the questioner originates from.
Where to Send?
I look forward to your questions. 🙂
