OTHER FOCUS AREAS

  • FAMILY LAW
  • CAPITAL MARKETS LAW
  • CONSTITUTIONAL & ADMINISTRATIVE LAW
This branch of law seeks to define status between the parties in the family as a  fundamental unity of our Kenyan society i.e. it defines what rights a member of the family can claim over the other or over the other’s property. It also serves to protect certain weaker members of that family e.g. children. On termination of a family relationship, there are certain members who may need protection especially economic protection. The various aspects of family law litigation include succession, children, and divorce matters. As a legal firm, CS Advocates LLP has successfully handled several high-profile cases in this area. We also continue to advance our client’s best interests in multiple ongoing cases. Similarly, the firm also has several advocates who specialize in this CS Advocates LLPsphere of law.
Capital markets are markets for buying and selling equity and debt instruments. Capital markets channel savings and investment between suppliers of capital such as retail investors and institutional investors, and users of capital like businesses, government, and individuals. This area of law is governed by the Capital Markets Act together with the regulations therein. In this sphere of law, CS Advocates, LLP has and continues to represent an array of clients in several litigious matters that have arisen from the violation of the Act and the regulations therein. The firm has three (3) advocates who are experts in this area of law.
The promulgation of a new constitution in Kenya in 2010 brought into prominence this branch of law. The country has witnessed multiple constitutional petitions and judicial review applications. This is largely due to the fact that with expanded democracy in Kenya, the citizens now understand their rights more and can very easily access the High Court. CS Advocates LLP as a firm has in the process advanced the jurisprudence in this sphere of law by representing and successfully prosecuting several constitutional petitions and judicial review applications. The Firm has a good number of advocates who are conversant and purely specialize in this area of law.
