In a momentous gathering on November 17th, 2023, the Law Society of Kenya (LSK), emblematic of its unwavering commitment to the rule of law and universal access to justice, undertook a historic stride toward ground-breaking property development, championing a transformative vision.

Embracing the mantle of innovation, LSK envisions two pioneering projects, each poised to redefine its landscape:

South C Residential Apartments

A paradigm of modern living:

These developments are set to revolutionize the Society, not only in terms of infrastructure but also as revenue-generating assets, fostering sustainability and growth.

During a pivotal moment, the Law Society of Kenya Development and Investment Committee (LSKDIC), consisting of 11 distinguished legal experts specializing in project finance, tax, and real estate, orchestrated seven pivotal resolutions that garnered unanimous adoption. Representing the committee, Charles Owiti, a seasoned advocate with 20 years of expertise, adeptly presented the Membership-Informed Symphony report to the esteemed members at the assembly.
