Infrastructure & Projects

Partners in the Firm have been involved in much of the development of the Infrastructure, Energy and Mining sector in Kenya. With the ever-growing demand for robust infrastructure and with Kenya being at the precipice of transitioning to an oil producing state, the infrastructure, energy and mining sector continues to create exciting opportunities as well as legal and commercial challenges that require bold and creative solutions.

Our team has a thorough working knowledge of the industry as most of them have the requisite expertise and have been key players in various national and cross-border transactions.

The Firm has advised on: transactions relating to project development; Mergers & Acquisitions in the industry; the introduction of independent power producers into the Kenyan Energy sector; oil, mineral and precious stone exploration and mining operations in the country; funding options; and the Kenyan legislation relating thereto.

In association with our practice in Environmental Law and Tax Law, we are better able to guide our sector clients through the Environmental Law and regulatory issues affecting their exploration and mining operations as well as the tax implications, custom regulations, realisable benefits and exemptions that accrue to the industry.
