Laws are instruments for social change in a society and the Firm has been a key contributor to the social change due to its involvement in the drafting and review of key legislation in Kenya. We offer legal advice and support to legislators both at national and county governments, government institutions, policymakers, special interest groups and private entities in drafting laws, policies, regulations and other legal instruments in varied sectors including land, healthcare, trade, public finance, environmental, capital markets and infrastructure.

Our dedicated team of lawyers provide our clients with unmatched quality research and analyses on legal issues involving a review of both local and international best practices for the specific sector.

This ensures that the legislation is all encompassing and meets the expectations of the public. We also regularly assist our clients in analyzing proposed legislation to keep them informed of the potential changes and the likely impact on their businesses.
