Legal market overview
Kenya’s economic growth has given the local legal market ample opportunity to demonstrate its sophistication and capabilities. Local law firms are building resources and areas of expertise, with individual practitioners also becoming increasingly specialised; many have trained internationally, especially in the UK, and standards are high.
Kenyan firms are also developing cross-border connections. Anjarwalla & Khanna, for instance, is part of the Africa Legal Network, an alliance of firms covering 12 jurisdictions. In addition, Iseme, Kamau & Maema Advocates is part of DLA Piper Africa, an alliance of law firms across the continent, and Coulson Harney Advocates is now known as Bowmans, Coulson Harney and is part of the South African firm's Africa group.
While Kenyan firms have sought to be more active in cross-border matters, developments of note on a domestic level include the demerger of Hamilton Harrison & Mathews and Oraro & Company Advocates, which chose to separate only a few months after combining; the latter essentially returns to having a core focus on dispute resolution, thanks in part to the presence of the highly acclaimed George Oraro. Daly & Figgis Advocates is now known as Daly & Inamdar Advocates.

If you were a beneficiary of someone who left assets in Spain but you were not yourself a resident of Spain you may have paid a higher rate of inheritance tax and may be due a refund since a ruling in the European Court of Justice in September 2014 which decided that the difference applied between residents and non-residents with regard to the application of inheritance tax and gift tax was discriminatory. The Spanish legislator has therefore been obliged to amend the inheritance tax law.

The Turkish Constitutional Court recently decided that the right to privacy can be violated on the Internet. The court's decision numbered 2014/16701 ("Decision") was delivered on October 13, 2016 and concerned a military officer's dismissal from the Turkish Armed Forces ("TAF"). The ground of the dismissal was that the officer's private life is not suitable for TAF's ethical code of conduct and this information was provided from the images which were broadcasted on the Internet. The officer ("applicant") individually applied to the Turkish Constitutional Court claiming that the principle of proportionality was not considered in the dismissal and his right to privacy was violated since the evidence is obtained unlawfully.
