AREAS OF PRACTICE

Media and entertainment
The Kenyan media and entertainment industry has slowly entered a golden era. Liberalization of laws has seen strong growth and has more potential with Kenya being the fastest growing market in East Africa.

We have acted as legal advisors in the restructuring of leading  television and media companies in Kenya. We continue to provide legal services relating to joint ventures & collaborations, writers, directors and producers, performers and actors and to all aspects of film, television production and finance in and from Kenya.

We effect registration of transfer documents with the relevant authority, and advice investors on project development and investment in real estate for commercial, industrial or residential purposes.

 

 

Infrastracture
The term infrastructure has diverse meanings in different fields but is most widely understood to refer to utilities especially roads and airports.

We advice and arbitrate on emerging legal issues including construction law, collections, builders liens, investment strategies and technology industry analysis to hasten the implementation of the expanding infrastructure throughout the country.

 

 

Presidential and parliamentary election petitions
Kenya has been a multi-party democracy since 1992 when the constitution was amended to allow the return of multi-party democracy. Since then, multi-party presidential and parliamentary elections are held every five years.

Under the Kenyan electoral law, the election of a successful candidate can be challenged in the High Court of Kenya. We advise on and represent parties to election petitions filed in the High Court both at parliamentary and presidential elections levels.
