Corporate & Commercial Law
A Modular Approach The big picture? We see it too

As a leading hub for trade and commerce, Kenya is at the centre of a burgeoning corporate and commercial environment developing within the East African region. O&M Law has built a wealth of experience to become a trusted legal advisor to a wide array of local, regional and international companies.

By acting in various capacities for various parties to transactions including sellers, purchasers, directors, shareholders and financial advisors, among others, we have become more attuned not just to the strict legal needs of each client but also to the business needs that often get ignored.

We advise established businesses in various aspects of their operations and assist them structure financing, equity sales and purchases, and operations of their subsidiaries. We recognise that as our clients businesses mature, their needs become more complex and we adapt by working in cross-functional teams to ensure that our clients receive experienced and insightful advice on any issue that may arise.

We also have a deep understanding of start ups and are skilled at providing the necessary legal support to help start ups grow into sustainable businesses. Our engagement often begins as early as the business planning stage, before the company has even been formed. When we get involved at the outset, we are able to guide our clients overcome many of the pitfalls that await an early stage company whether this involves setting up a wholly new entity or establishing a branch or a regional branch of a much larger conglomerate.

Over the course of our existence we have established ourselves as trusted advisors in mergers and acquisitions which has lead to our firm being a preferred legal service provider for various regional companies and international businesses with interests in Africa.

Our reach extends into Uganda, Tanzania, Rwanda and Ethiopia where we have assisted in trans-national incorporation of entities on behalf of our clients as well as multi-faceted acquisitions and disposals of entire business undertakings.

We also advise on corporate governance and compliance issues.
