Corporate & Commercial Law

We act as corporate legal advisers to a large number of businesses in Kenya.

These range from purely local undertakings to subsidiaries and branches of international corporations.

In this capacity, we are appointed by our clients on retainer to advise on typical day-to-day issues as they might arise, including matters in relation to employment, tax, leases and contracts; or are asked to undertake specific larger tasks such as drafting and negotiating a broad spectrum of agreements typical to corporate and commercial entities. We hold our clients’ hands through various sectors of corporate commercial law such as intellectual property, public private partnerships, mergers and acquisitions, capital markets and corporate restructuring.

Our clients represent a broad spectrum of industry including banks and financial institutions, insurance companies, brokers, the hospitality sector, private equity funds, communications providers, m-commerce operators, agribusiness (including horticulture and floriculture), airlines, pharmaceutical companies, oil and gas companies, independent power producers and property developers. As general counsel to our clients, we cherish the relationships that are forged with sponsors and aim to ensure that we are always there when needed.
