MSI’s law firm member in Uganda, Kaddu & Partners Advocates (KPA), is delighted to have been ranked among the Top 25 Law Firms in Uganda by 'The CEO Magazine' and 'The Firm Ltd' in its first ever comprehensive ranking of law firms in the country.
The publication reveals that according to a list by the Ministry of Justice and Constitutional Affairs, Uganda had 774 law firms approved to provide legal services in the country as at September 20, 2017.
The author noted: “There is obviously no universally agreed principle for measuring law firms, but in our compilation we considered the age and experience of the firm, number of lawyers and most importantly, the experience, influence and impact of the firms’ senior partners. […], we also looked at the diversity of practice areas these firms are engaged in, as well as the nature of clients and assignments handled.
We also put into consideration the firms’ affiliations to global law firms as well as accolades and awards they have won. In this respect we also looked at listings and or mentions by three of the world’s major guides on top law firms: IFLR1000 Financial and Corporate Guide, Chambers Global Guide and The Legal 500 EMEA 2018…”
The author made this observation about KPA. “Although the firm is relatively young, they have already made a mark on the Commercial Law practice in Uganda…The firm has been a legal advisor to several international NGO’s, to National Water & Sewerage Corporation for several years and to a number of financial institutions. The ongoing Entebbe Express Way project contractor, CCCC has also sought its expertise on several legal matters and representation in over 35 cases in the High Court in Uganda underlining the firm’ strength…”
