Ong’anya Ombo Advocates LLP offers unique legal services that focus on advancing fashion, media & entertainment law. Like most other African markets, the aspect of fashion, media, and entertainment law has not been seriously taken care of in the Kenyan market, and most of the key players seem ignorant until when something goes wrong.
Our service model is preventive and defensive depending on the stage or type of dispute our services are invoked. These services are meant to ensure that the African players in these fields are well protected and be assured of transacting on their content in the near future or through trusts established to hold their intangible assets that generate value day in day out. There have been recorded reports from reputable media outlets and government agencies on how entertainment content has been transacted on and artists had less control over those contents, for instance, Tylor Swift's content being sold/rented for more than US$300M and Wu-Tang Clan's unreleased album sold for over US$2M. Also, there are cases like that of one of the world's greatest stand-up comedians, such as Dave Chappelle’s whereby many of his rights and revenue were limited through a contract.
Our interest is to provide exemplary services to clients who understand the worth of their work or are interested in understanding the worth of their work. The market dynamics may be different; however, we have a smart approach to fashion, media, and entertainment law matters.
