If you ask Rutto what he’s having his mocha with, he’s likely to tell you the Business Daily or the Daily Nation or any number of financial and legal journals he ravenously consumes. A name partner at the firm, he is an avid follower of the capital markets, big on growth but not so big on regulation! He has developed a soft spot for fintech companies and is actively engaged in efforts to create their umbrella association. His practice embraces commercial and corporate law, intellectual property law, entertainment and media law, aviation law, banking and securities law as well as conveyancing.
He is a certified professional secretary and regularly provides advisory to clients on corporate compliance and filings. He is equally at home when carrying out due diligence for a corporate governance audit as when advising a major Kenyan mining entity on the regulatory concerns under Kenyan mining and extractive industries laws and environmental laws and is mildly obsessive when it comes to firming up contracts. Rutto believes there’s a special place in hell for lawyers who draft badly! And if you are curious as to what cryptocurrencies are or why blockchain technology is the future, give him a ring for a passionate exposition on the subject. He won’t stop!
