Not-for-Profit Organisations

We handle the setting up and incorporation of not-for-profit organisations structured as non-governmental organizations (currently transitioning to public benefits organisations “PBOs”), companies limited by guarantee, societies and public trusts. We also undertake filing of annual returns in respect of public trusts and companies limited by guarantee as well as amendment of constitutions, change of officials as well as advise them on their respective legal and regulatory compliance framework.

We also set up, register and advise on primary, secondary and apex cooperative societies overseen by the State Department for Co-operatives of the Ministry of Industry, Trade and Co-operative; and savings and credit cooperatives societies (“SACCOs”) including deposit taking SACCOs regulated by Sacco Societies Regulatory Authority (“SASRA”).

Yes! You should never take legal action without the assistance of an experienced professional. If you need any legal advice, work with OT Advocates right away!

OT Advocates accepts cheques, direct bank transfer (SWIFT, RTGS, EFT), cash, mobile money (this includes MPESA, Airtel Money). A Deposit Request Note (invoice) is issued immediately instructions have been firmed up by the client; and at completion, a Fee Note (final invoice) is issued for the balance of the agreed fee and disbursements with credit being afforded to the earlier payment (deposit). All payments are due within fourteen (14) days from receipt of invoice.

Usually, clients meet with our attorneys at our offices but not always. If this is not convenient or you are prevented from physically meeting us at our office, we are amenable to having a Skype, Imo or WhatsApp call or video call, tele-conference call, normal telephone calls or email correspondence. We are always happy to work with our clients to ensure that their legal matters are solved in the most efficient and expeditious manner. If this means meeting with you at a place other than our office, we would be happy to do so, under reasonable circumstances.

Yes. If you choose to engage OT Advocates, do not hesitate to ask us any relevant questions concerning your matter. You can inquire about fees and payment terms; our strategy for handling your matter; what to expect during the process; the documentation and information needed by us; possible outcomes; how to prepare for negotiations and legal proceedings; and how to communicate with your attorney (especially in the event that an urgent issue arises).
