The emerging leader in employment law in Kenya, Munyao Muthama & Kashindi (MMK Advocates), continues to grow with Margaret Miringu joining the firm as partner from Dentons Hamilton Harrison & Mathews. She joined the firm's dispute resolution and employment practices that has earned recognition of clients and peers in recent years.
Margaret is an established litigator with considerable experience in commercial and civil litigation, and employment and labour relations. MMK announcing her partner appointment said "Margaret is a natural fit for the MMK team which has been described by Legal 500 as "young, dynamic, professional and highly qualified."
MMK Advocates now has a total of 13 lawyers, 6 Partners and 7 Associates, making it a truly middle-size law firm. The firm was in February 2020 recognized and ranked by the prestigious global legal directory Chambers and Partners as a Recognized Practitioner in Dispute Resolution.
Some of MMK's partners have also been individually recognized and top-ranked by Chambers and Partners, Legal 500 and Client Choice Awards. Additionally, two of the firm's partners in the Dispute Resolution Practice, George Kashindi and Irene Kashindi, recently published Kashindi's Digest of Employment Cases, so far the most comprehensive Digest of Employment and Labour Relations Cases in Kenya.
"MMK's client base includes Kenya's largest corporations, financial institutions, multinational corporations, government agencies and not for profit organisations all of which expect top notch services from our team of lawyers", said George Kashindi (Head of Dispute Resolution Practice | MMK).
He added "Margaret's long tenure and experience practicing law at a leading top tier law firm will further strengthen our insolvency, tax and regulatory advisory practice offerings allowing the firm to continue to provide stellar services to clients and to further expand MMK's acquisition of business."
Margaret is an Advocate of the High Court of Kenya as well as a Certified Public Secretary and Certified Public Accountant finalist.
