Oraro & Company Advocates has once again been recognised for its expertise in Dispute Resolution, receiving a Tier 1 ranking from leading international legal directory - Legal 500, in its 2022 EMEA edition.

When commenting on the practice, clients noted that it has “experienced legal experts of many years and in different legal fields of practice, with quick responses to legal needs of clients. They are willing to bend backwards for clients. They have a wide network of experienced legal firms to represent clients where the firm has no offices.”

The directory also ranked the firm in the following practice areas - Employment, Banking, Finance & Capital Markets, Real Estate & Construction and Privatisation and Projects.

Clients commended the firm by stating that “they give efficient legal services. I like the way they handle all legal matters assigned to them with a lot of passion, due diligence, and high standard services. They are exceptional in terms of hiring very competent personnel who ensure all legal matters are handled very well.

Other clients remarked that “relative to other firms in the market, Oraro does an excellent job collaborating across practice disciplines. They seem to have smaller staffing on matters, which seems to allow for greater collaboration among their subject matter experts. This allows them to provide comprehensive expert support in a very expedient manner.”

Owing to their remarkable careers spanning decades, both our Founding Partner, George Oraro SC, and Senior Partner Chacha Odera, have retained their ‘Leading Individual’ rankings in Dispute Resolution. Noella Lubano, a Partner with extensive experience in asset tracing, fraud & banking litigation, insolvency and arbitration matters, also received recognition as a ‘Next Generation Partner’ in Dispute Resolution.
