In this edition of the Africa Legal Podcast series Doreen Onwong’a and Emmanuel Mueke from KN Law in Nairobi speak about the rapid growth of this agile boutique firm based in Kenya’s capital and now also represented in the United Kingdom.
Doreen, a partner, shares her journey into law and how she moved from being an in-house counsel within the finance sector to becoming a specialist in real estate, project finance, construction and capital market transactions.
Emmanuel, a senior associate with a special focus on commercial dispute resolution and litigation, tells how his interest in business and public policy grew into a passion for law and justice. He explains how a mid-sized law firm, like KN Law, is more easily able to build a personal relationship with a client at a time when those needing legal services are demanding value for money.
Emmanuel talks through the challenges companies face when they are in distress and how slow downs, like that which is currently being experienced because of Covid-19, can provide opportunities to restructure and look at debt.
Doreen tells how the firm is building relationships with clients and partner law firms in the United Kingdom - with the recent relocation of KN Law’s founding partner Mugambi Nandi.
She also addresses the issue of female empowerment in law and how women need to have confidence especially when they have put in the hard work.
