Our Work In 2018

Litigation

  • In the Constitutional Court, we secured a judgment to the effect that a child does not have constitutional right to free education at a private school.
  • We successfully prosecuted cases on behalf of employees and secured compensatory awards ranging from 6 to 12 months’ salary.
  • We represented clients in divorce claims and in guardianship applications.
  • We are now representing one County Government and we are hoping to grow this area of our practice.
  • The wheels of justice grind slowly but we are glad that justice prevailed in the end. We are still waiting for determination of various disputes including an appeal on a trade union registration as well as a commercial dispute involving reinstatement to a partnership.
  • Our overall success rate was 80%.

Employment Law

  • We drafted and reviewed employment contracts, HR Manuals, policies and templates.
  • We also gave plenty of general advice on employment matters including advice and representation in revocation of recognition agreements. Our blog, Kenya Employment Law, was also nominated for a BAKE Award.
  • We successfully defended claims for unfair termination filed against employers. In two cases, for example, the court confirmed that the respective employees had resigned voluntarily.
  • We also obtained interim orders in favour of an employee whose employment was at risk of termination on account of an unfair performance improvement process.

Corporate / Commercial Law

  • We incorporated companies and assisted with various changes such as changes in the directors and shareholders. We also advised on corporate governance and drafted shareholders agreements.
  • We collaborated with a law firm located in UAE in representation of a multi-national corporation.
  • We drafted and reviewed many contracts, including over 20 commercial contracts ranging from contracts for the provision of various services, service level agreements, master rental agreements, memoranda of understanding, hire purchase contracts etc.
