As an Affiliate Member, Oraro & Company Advocates shall continue operating independently and will continue offering professional legal services in Kenya while promoting the objectives of the ABDA.

AB & David Africa (ABDA) is a Pan-African business law network committed to ensuring that businesses and projects succeed in Africa by helping clients minimize the risks associated with doing business on the continent.

This partnership borne out of years of a working best friend’s relationship, takes our synergy with ABDA to the next level. The consolidation of the ABDA/Oraro & Company Advocates relationship comes at a time when businesses are fast expanding across the African continent and the AfCFTA is set to present vast opportunities for trade, cross border transactions and the emergence of new Africa corporate giants. In light of this, the presence of multi-jurisdictional lawyers has become an even more important platform for business growth.

The ABDA Group, which applies international best practice, global experience, and local knowledge to serve its clients, has offices and affiliates in Ghana, Mauritius, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Uganda, and the fast-growing network of best friends which reaches 30 out of the 54 African countries. Our presence in the Group provides an enhanced ability to assist clients in East Africa and will create even greater value for our clients across Africa, solidifying the excellence and quality of service that we as Oraro & Company Advocates have endeavoured to provide and will continue providing.

What this affiliation means to you as our esteemed client is that we are now able to provide a one-stop-shop legal needs solution to your business in the different African jurisdictions. Our shared values, synergies and focus on quality of work will ensure that this significant development is beneficial to your business.
