The new partners are Gibran Darr from the Dispute Resolution department, Nancy Ndegwa from the Real Estate department, and Cheryl Mageto from the Corporate & Commercial department.
The firm’s partnership believes that Gibran, Nancy, and Cheryl have demonstrated the firm’s core values and desired work ethic in the eyes of valued clients. They have shown commitment, zeal, and enthusiasm to ensure that clients are well represented, cared for and catered to. This client-focused approach is the reason clients often refer others to the firm.
“In my over 50 years of experience as a practising advocate in Kenya, I have interacted with and nurtured some of the finest legal minds in this country. I am confident that Gibran, Nancy and Cheryl are adding to the profession as we strive towards our goal of remaining a future-facing law firm in the region,” said Hamish Keith, Senior Partner, CMS Kenya.
The new additions to the partnership team are equally thrilled with their promotions and the opportunities ahead. “Partnership at my firm gives me the opportunity to contribute to the leadership of a dynamic and future-facing dispute resolution team which is committed to fostering its existing relationships and creating new synergies in a constantly evolving legal environment,” said Gibran. “I look forward to the challenge of contributing to the growth of a law firm that not only embraces its already rich heritage, but also places an equally large premium on investing in its people.”
“I am delighted by my admission to the partnership of CMS Kenya,” said Nancy. “I look forward to exploring this new chapter in my career with the firm and being an integral part of a team that shapes the future on matters of real estate and property.”
Cheryl said CMS Kenya has contributed immensely to her professional growth from the beginning of her pupillage. “I am privileged to be part of an agile future-facing corporate commercial team that continuously seeks to upskill and develop commercially sensitive solutions to complex business problems. I look forward to supporting our clients’ legal needs and mentoring the next generation of young lawyers within the firm,” she commented.
These admissions underscore CMS Kenya’s commitment to investing in its people as well as recognising merit where it is due and enabling its staff to achieve their professional heights. It also reinforces the firm’s solid belief in diversity through a multicultural team.
