The Legal 500 EMEA 2021 Rankings

16th April 2021

Oraro & Company Advocates has once again been featured as a top tier firm in the 2021 edition of Legal 500 EMEA rankings. The firm has been highly recognised in four practice areas, including Dispute Resolution, Employment & Labour, Banking, Finance & Capital Markets and Real Estate & Construction.

Our Senior Partner, George Oraro SC, and Managing Partner, Chacha Odera, have retained the “Leading Individual” ranking in Dispute Resolution. The directory noted that the two are the most prominent litigation lawyers in the Kenyan legal market. In addition, Noella Lubano, Partner, has been recognised among the top dispute lawyers in the market for her extensive experience in handling disputes involving financial institutions and insolvency and restructuring matters.

In the Employment practice area, Chacha Odera has also been highly regarded, alongside Georgina Ogalo-Omondi with the directory noting that the firm is primarily known for contentious employment matters and represents some of the biggest employers in Kenya, given its dispute resolution-centric heritage.

Our Banking, Finance & Capital Markets and Real Estate & Construction team led by Pamella Ager has also been recommended by Legal 500 EMEA for their outstanding contribution to these practice areas.

The Legal 500 EMEA guide provides researched coverage of over 80 countries and over 2,700 ranked law firms. The rankings are based on feedback from clients, submissions from law firms and interviews with leading legal practitioners.
