We are pleased to invite you to our International Trade Law event, in commemoration of the African Integration Day. The event, themed ‘Regional Integration from a Regulatory and Private Sector Perspective: The Implications of Trade in Africa’, will bring together a diverse group of panellists and attendees that encounter integration and trade issues across a variety of business sectors and interact on these issues from policy perspectives. The African Integration Day was established in 2019 by the African Union Heads of State and Government to celebrate the major achievements attained in the regional and continental integration process; and to deliberate on critical lessons learned, with a view to addressing challenges faced. The annual celebration is based on Africa’s Integration Agenda which has the overarching objective of establishing the African Economic Community at the continental level. Operationalisation of trading under the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) brings the Continent one step closer to this goal.
The event will be hosted at ALN House on Thursday, 28 July 2022 from 3:30 pm. To RSVP, please send an email to [email protected]
We look forward to hosting you.

Globally, the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) landscape has rapidly advanced in recent years, with multiple entities developing their own specific standards, particularly where regulations do not exist. Kenya has equally seen developments in this area, however, there are no universal or agreed-upon definition of ESG-related risks or framework for compliance.
As companies look beyond the pandemic, concerns around environmental, social and governance related risks are significantly taking centre stage for many businesses. Therefore, creating a need for businesses to reshape their portfolios, reimagine their ecosystems and reinvent themselves for a better and more sustainable future. Given these and other concerns and subsequent compliance requirements around ESG globally and locally, including the recent regulations issued by the Central Bank of Kenya, we are pleased to invite you to an in-person event that will be hosted at ALN House on Thursday, 26 May 2022 from 3:30 pm.
A distinguished panel of industry experts representing financial institutions and the corporate sector will then share their views and engage in an interactive discussion. A networking cocktail will follow.
To RSVP, please send an email to [email protected]
We look forward to hosting you.
The Kenyan insolvency regime has drastically changed over the last few years more so with the enactment of the Insolvency Act 2015, which overhauled the insolvency and restructuring regime in the country. This law was enacted with the key objective of amending and consolidating the legislation relating to the insolvency of natural persons and incorporated and unincorporated bodies. Further, the change was driven by the need to provide for and regulate the bankruptcy or liquidation of distressed persons to enable their affairs to be managed for the benefit of their creditors.
