Our Mombasa Office was set up in the year 2012 with a then humble and dedicated team of 3 and an equally small cluster of files. Our evolution, owing to our pioneer clients to whom we are eternally grateful, has been marked by the growth of the team to over 20 including 7 advocates, pupils and support staff. We have also expanded our practice areas to include maritime and shipping and non-litigious debt collection apart from the conventional conveyancing and litigation.
Our offices are strategically located along Nkrumah Road which is considered an artery of Mombasa town as it is lined with all the major commercial banks and leads to the essential County offices and the main Mombasa Law Courts. The Mombasa team has been lauded by our clients for their accurate responsiveness and no doubt it is this spirit that will see us scale greater heights.
