Diversity at Anjarwalla & Khanna (A&K) is part of the fabric of the firm, starting from a leadership team which is genuinely open-minded, visionary and a visible ambassador for an open-minded, progressive and inclusive outlook on life. With a focus on talent, merit and culture-fit, our firm’s inclusive nature is embedded in our recruitment, promotion and client engagement decisions, and applies to gender, race, tribe, religion, socio-economic background and political affiliation. In terms of gender parity, 51% of our staff is female, as is 46% of the partnership. A&K’s staff includes British, French, American, Colombian, Nigerian, Japanese, Indian, South African, and Kenyan nationalities.

Diversity of viewpoints has made A&K particularly strong and has allowed us to aim high, grow fast, and as a result, serve a large and diverse client base. Keen on fostering diversity beyond the confines of the firm, A&K hosts the ‘Leading Women Series’ a series of exclusive networking soirees for leading women in Kenya where like-minded women share their views, learn from others’ personal lessons and evaluate the status of gender equality on the continent.

In totality, our diverse exposure facilitates innovation and impacts how we view the firm’s progression, our service to clients and our contribution to the African continent.

A&K’s CSR committee leads and coordinates the firm’s initiatives in community service, enabling us to widen access to Justice, finance and education. The firm’s involvement in community work is pegged on five pillars, including education, health, children, the elderly and the environment. Through these pillars, A&K supports various charitable organisations dedicated to enriching the lives of the underprivileged and disadvantaged communities.

Pro Bono
A&K believes it has a responsibility to give back to the community and help those who have no access to legal services. Our pro bono practice allows our lawyers to fulfil their professional and ethical responsibility and make those services available and accessible to those who would otherwise be deprived of legal representation.

Our pro bono legal services focus on charitable, religious, civic, community, non-profit and educational matters affecting members with limited resources. A&K’s Pro Bono policy encourages its professional staff to each spend at least 25 hours a year providing pro bono services. Accordingly, A&K is a member of Trustlaw, the Thomson Reuters Foundation pro bono referral organization and an active participant in the New York Bar Association’s Cyrus R. Vance Center for International Justice.
