Marlene Abong’o & Co. Advocates has built a stellar reputation as a leading law firm in Kenya. Recognized for its pre-eminence in providing specialized legal advisory services, high level dispute resolution (through both litigation and alternative dispute resolution mechanisms) and handling complex and high value conveyancing and commercial transactions, the firm has set high standards based on its exceptional services and dedicated workforce.

The firm mainly specializes in litigation (both civil and criminal), conveyancing, family law (children and divorce), commercial transactions and intellectual property rights where it has managed to amass numerous clients. The firm’s civil and commercial litigation practice has an outstanding reputation and considerable experience in the following areas:

  1. a) Acting for Banks in enforcing and recovery under security documentation.
  2. b) General property litigation.
  3. c) Advising receivers and liquidation on receivership and winding up of companies.

The Firm has equally undertaken all sorts of property related matters ranging from structured property transactions, leases and licenses, mortgages and charges, sales and purchases of land, to more technical areas of land law including sub-divisions, amalgamations, exchanges of land and change of user. It is our goal to safeguard our clients’ interests from the potential liabilities and implications of existing legislations and any future legislation governing land laws in Kenya. We thereby seek to find innovative solutions to project problems and steer such projects to successful conclusion.
