Our Firm’s History

Jack Brian Ong'anya and Ombo Malumbe attended top high schools in Western Kenya; thus, Kakamega High School and Musingu School respectively. The two academic giants are arch-rivals in curricular and co-curricular activities.

Jack Brian Ong'anya and Ombo Malumbe met at Mount Kenya University, School of Law in 2012, where they became friends and engaged in Law School Mooting Competitions. They took part in various moots like the African Human Rights Moot Court Competition, Manfred Lachs Space Law Moot Court, Save the Children Moot Court Competition, and Monroe E. Price Media Law Moot Court Competition.

Other than the friendship, they noted each other's potential in legal practice and decided that they should gain the needed experience from various fields of practice - upon admission to the bar, they intended to start a law firm. They engaged various senior attorneys on various aspects of the law. They joined reputable top-tier law firms for tutelage, where they were retained and later resigned to launch their own law firm.
