Global firm Norton Rose Fulbright has entered into a formal alliance with leading Kenyan firm Walker Kontos.

Walker Kontos is one of Kenya's best firms for financial and corporate work, and is particularly impressive in the energy sector. IFLR1000 Leading lawyer and managing partner Michael Kontos leads the 20 strong team.
