Mkono & Co. Advocates

Mkono & Co Advocates was founded in 1977 by the Firm’s Managing Partner, Honourable Nimrod E. Mkono and remains the leading transactional law practice in Tanzania and East Africa.

Through our association with SNR Denton, we are part of an expanding network of associate offices throughout Africa and can draw upon an exclusive network of specialist international lawyers.

Mkono’s renowned Public-Private Partnership practice has seen the Firm involved in several cutting-edge PPP engagements. We advised the Government of Tanzania on legal and regulatory framework reform to support PPPs in Tanzania, by drafting and submitting a report to the Government, which led to the enactment of the Public Private Partnership Act, 2010 and its resulting regulations.

We also advised the governments of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda and Burundi in connection with the development of the 145 MW Ruzizi III regional hydropower project, as well as the International Finance Corporation (IFC) in connection with the identification of viable PPP projects in East Africa.

The Firm is recognised by international professional directories and has received multiple awards for its legal leadership and quality of service. The Firm has been ranked in Tier 1 by Chambers Global since 2000 and has several lawyers ranked as leaders in their field.
