Kiragu KimaniDentons Hamilton Harrison & Mathews

Dentons Hamilton Harrison & Mathews has a rich heritage in dispute resolution, thanks, in part, to the presence of Kenneth Fraser and Kiragu Kimani, who was recently appointed senior counsel, resulting in the practice being the only one in Kenya with two SCs.  Banking and insurance cases remain a particular forte for the group, which also leads the market in employment and tax cases. Judicial review and constitutional cases are another area of particular experience. Michi Kirimi is also highly recommended for employment disputes.
