The firm of Nyiha, Mukoma & Company Advocates was founded in the year 2000 by James Nyiha and Peter Maina Mukoma. The founder partners had, prior to teaming up, been in separate private practice as advocates since their admission to the bar in 1993.
The foundation of the firm saw the two energetic young (as they then were) lawyers bring together complementing litigation, commercial law and conveyancing skills.
With the passage of time, the firm has become a full service litigation, arbitration, conveyancing and commercial law firm covering all areas of corporate, civil and commercial law with expertise in construction arbitration law, banking law, conveyancing and civil litigation.
It is distinguished by the depth and scope of its legal advisory services and an unmatched understanding of the business practices and cultures in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.
Through commitment to understanding and meeting the business and legal needs of its clients, the firm has defined the standard for exceptional quality client service in the market place for legal services.Show more +
