The market feedback on CFL Advocates perfectly captures its USP: “It is important to find dependable law firms when managing IP matters in Africa. The common approach is to instruct the larger South African firms, which then appoint local outfits in specific countries; but for Kenya, you don’t need to go down that route, due to the reliability of CFL Advocates. CFL manages matters – including litigation – with great efficiency and success, and is just a pleasure to work with all round. It is a good business, not just legal partner; and it is straight to the point in style and flexible, too. It never overbills for administrative matters and its professionals are always available, approachable and quick to respond.” The architect of this stellar service is Lorna Mbatia, a sage counsellor distinguished by deep regional and international IP know-how, commerciality and cross-border coordination skills. She’s an inspiring leader for fast-rising stars that include senior associate Brenda Vilita and associates Wahura Mwangi and Jedidah Ngina – all of whom are warmly recommended by clients. Working cohesively as a team, they manage large portfolios with the minimum of fuss and in alignment with each client’s needs and priorities.
