Legal market overview

Kenya underwent its own constitutional crisis in 2017 with the general election overturned by the courts due to allegations of corruption and voting manipulation. An interest rate cap also hindered lending from domestic banks, taking billions of Kenyan shillings out of the economy. Many local corporates were facing financial difficulties, leading to a series of headline insolvencies and restructurings.

The country's legal market is reasonably developed with firms offering ever higher degrees of specialisation. Many firms are gaining valuable experience working alongside big international players; indeed Walker Kontos Advocates entered an alliance with global firm Norton Rose Fulbright South Africa Inc in 2016.

Kenyan firms are also setting the standards for wider practice in Africa. Anjarwalla & Khanna founded and developed the Africa Legal Network, an alliance of 16 independent law firms around Africa; the network has an additional associate member Webber Wentzel in South Africa.
