Iseme, Kamau & Maema Advocates remains active in domestic and cross-border M&A and private equity transactions. The firm's membership of DLA Piper Africa Group means it is especially well-equipped for cross-border deals in Africa. It advised Ramco Plexus on its acquisition of Pressmaster Africa and acted for Metropolitan Hospitals on the sale of a majority share in the business to Abraaj, the private equity house now in liquidation. James Kamau 'works very hard to keep transactions alive' and David Lekerai is an emerging talent. William Maema is another key member of the team.

  • Sentencing guidelines for corporate manslaughter

    In February 2010 the Sentencing Guidelines Council (the SGC) issued definitive guidelines to courts on imposing appropriate sentences for corporate manslaughter and health and safety offences causing death. The SGC states that fines imposed on companies found guilty of corporate manslaughter should not fall below £500,000, while fines in respect of health and safety offences that are a significant cause of death should be at least £100,000. Crucially, the SGC declined to provide for a fixed link between the imposed fine and the turnover or profitability of the offending company.
