Litigation & Dispute Counselling

Appellate Litigation

Appellate work requires precise knowledge and a new, fresh perspective about the issues involved in a particular case. We employ a detailed, comprehensive approach to produce meticulously researched appellate briefs of the highest quality, whether we are new to the case or are handling a familiar matter.

We also provide strategic counseling and advice on preservation of error and other trial-level issues that can affect subsequent appeals.

Commercial Litigation

Our experience litigating in a wide variety of venues includes the various levels of Courts in Kenya, a broad spectrum of administrative tribunals and arbitral forums and as well as East African Courts of Law.

Clay & Associates Advocate’s lawyers have considerable experience as counsel in complex commercial litigation and are also experienced in a variety of alternative dispute resolution forums, including mediation and settlement conferences.

Our litigators also serve as court-appointed or privately selected mediators and arbitrators. Our litigation team can provide advice on the full range of commercial disputes and are experts in all forms of dispute resolution including high value and complex commercial disputes, cross-border litigation, commercial mediation and other forms of ADR, and international arbitration.

Securities Litigation

We are a Litigation & Dispute Counselling law firm that is capable of handling securities cases and derivative actions, regulatory proceedings and internal investigations.

We are therefore able to bring securities litigation matters to an early conclusion, whether through negotiation or by court order.

Dispute Counselling

While our team is comprised of skilled litigators who repeatedly win at trial in favor of our clients, we appreciate that litigation, and ultimately trial, is not always the best answer. To this end, we offer a broad range of pre-litigation counseling, so that our clients can avoid litigation when possible.

We work with each of our clients to achieve the best outcome under the circumstances, in the most prompt and cost-efficient manner.

Employment & Labour

We have are able to handle cases involving claims alleging breach of contract, discrimination of all types, sexual and other harassment, whistleblowing, retaliation, wage/hour violations, trade secret theft, noncompetition agreements, employee raiding, share/securities and employee share ownership plans disputes, and officer fiduciary duties.

While our lawyers devise highly effective and efficient techniques for defending such claims, we do not litigate with a “knee jerk” or formulaic approach.  Rather, we start with the client’s desired outcomes and develop and execute strategies for reaching those objectives, often in the pre-litigation phase.

Government Contracts

We offer clients a broad range of counseling and litigation services provided by knowledgeable and experienced lawyers in the field.

We assist long-standing, sophisticated government contractors with legal and business matters unique and important to the government space, while also helping small and large companies enter and successfully navigate the government marketplace for the first time.

Count On Us

We all share the same common goals – to deliver legal advice of the highest quality that is clear and easy-to-understand for our clients and meets their specific needs at competitive rates (including fixed fees wherever possible to deliver value for money and budget certainty).
