Oraro & Company Advocates

After only 6 months of a demerge that was celebrated with pomp and colour, our client wished to demerge. While there was a lot of unsettling in the background, our brief was to ensure a seamless transition both internally and publicly.

Our mandate was to springboard the conversation to future opportunities rather than focusing the narrative on what did not work. The rebrand and staff relations were also managed tightly to avoid leaks in the press.

Njenga Karume Trust

Following the patriarch's demise, a section of his children moved to court to contest his will and the trust. The trial was hence moved to the court of public opinion and the trust was exposed to potential damage that could cripple their operations.

Our mandate has been to move the focus from the court theatrics to a narrative of understanding sustainable estate planning under trusts, using Njenga Karume as precedence.
