Established in 2010, Gikera & Vadgama Advocates (GVA) has grown to become one of the largest and leading firms in Kenya, with a notable and increasing presence in the East African region. Combining our time-honored traditions of delivering excellent & personalized service to clients with a bold and dynamic vision for the future of legal practice, we seek to provide our clients with the value-added and practical solutions suited to the modern economy and an inter-connected world.
This year marks the eleventh anniversary of GVA’s existence, a journey that has been a compelling narrative of hard work, lucky breaks, triumph over adversity and, sometimes, fun. It all started on the 1st of May 2010 when Stephen Njoroge Gikera took the plunge, left his relatively secure job at the Attorney General’s Chambers and founded S.N Gikera and Associates. With just two members of staff and four files, the firm was established at its first location on the ground floor of Bemuda Plaza on Ngong Road. Its focus then was Dispute Resolution with a bias towards Litigation.
We have embarked on a strategic plan dubbed GVA 2.0. This will involve embracing technology to leverage on a constantly changing business environment, international partnerships, broadening of the partners’ committee, internship programs to harness talent and training interns both locally and internationally to align them with global best practices.
