The Above Standard : December - Issue 003 - 2018

This is the finale issue in the first year of publication of Above the Standard. In our final edition for the year, we highlight issues arising from two landmark court decisions in the financial sector: VAT on commercial building and launching of new coins by the Central Bank of Kenya. We also look at how positive legislation can impact ICT innovation in Kenya, the intricacies of project financing and a summary on some notable commercial ventures that have taken place in this year. In our Know Your Advocate column we feature Tom Onyango, partner in charge of Real Estate and Banking, and find out what makes him tick. I am proud to present our final issue of Above the Standard for this year.

This has been a year in which we have experienced significant growth both in terms of our practice areas and resources and we continue to be grateful for the trust and confidence that our valued clients bestow on us. Certainly, there have been challenges but these have been met and overcome with the same methodical resolve with which we approach every task entrusted to us by our clients. All in all, we remain grateful for the unwavering support of our clients and other business partners as we look forward to 2019. With best wishes for Christmas and the New Year. Finally, TripleOKLaw LLP Advocates was the first law firm in Kenya to start operating as a limited liability partnership. We provide some insight as to why this remains a viable business strategy.

We trust that this will be an enlightening read and look forward to receiving your feedback on the articles or any future articles.
