The Dispute Resolution Division’s lawyers are among the leading practitioners in Commercial Litigation; Alternative Dispute Resolution and Mediation; and Arbitration in Kenya, the East African region and internationally.

The Firm currently renders debt collection services to the numerous corporate clients, among them:
The Division is headed by a Partner, Mr. Peter Munge, assisted by one Associate Partner and four (4) internal debt collectors. Each debt collector has a portfolio which he/she manages under close supervision and guidance of the partner-in-charge.
Debt Collection is an area of particular concern in the business world. In view of the constraints in the Court system, we set up a debt collection unit which supplements and complements our Court action against debtors. It is made up of debt collectors who are also investigators whose primary role is to pursue debtors aggressively. From our experience, a sizeable number of debtors respond positively (by paying) if sufficient pressure is put on them.
Our team of debt collectors makes every effort to trace debtors and identify their assets as well as establish their financial standing. This information also ensures that “hopeless” debts are identified early and not pursued thus saving the client legal costs that may be incurred in the Court process. The unit has proved particularly effective in the recovery of Credit Card debts on behalf of our Bank clients, a category of debt that is usually more problematic than most. We deliver the monies to our clients within Forty-Eight (48) hours of receiving cleared funds.
