The Uganda Museum, the most famous depository of the country’s history, was the perfect place to celebrate 30 years of the celebrated corporate and commercial law firm, Shonubi Musoke & Co. Advocates.
Elegantly dressed in African themed attire, staff and esteemed guests came together to mark the law firm’s milestone. They were treated to drinks, music performances and a tour of historical relics around the museum at the cocktail event.
The firm opened its doors to the Uganda public on 18 September 1987. Its’ major practice areas are banking and finance, corporate and commercial law, energy and infrastructure, and litigation.
“When Peters Musoke and I put our heads together and decided to start a law firm in 1987, we had ambitions and some experience behind us. We also had visions, but those visions did not include being here on this night celebrating our operation as a law firm for 30 years,” said Dr Alan Shonubi, a senior partner, and a founding partner with the firm.
In its three decades of operation in Uganda, the firm was the first to build a purpose law firm building. It also opened up an office in Burundi. It also has access to operate on the global scene through its strategic partnership with Norton Rose Fulbright.
The firm offers end-to-end legal services; from the setting up of businesses, ensuring regulatory compliance, and provision of specialist advice on commercial transactions across its’ range of practice areas. This is all underpinned by its corporate belief that integrity is central to the success of its relationships and transactions.
Peters Musoke, the firms’ second founding partner, said that it is “also keen on identifying and participating in community initiatives to improve the lives of the community that surrounds us.”
He added: “Through things like the fundraising for Nsambya Babies Home, donations to the hospital in Entebbe and most recently our contribution to Wakisa Ministries crisis pregnancy centre for teenage mothers in Mengo, we do our best to ensure that we acknowledge the problems that surround us and do what we can to help.”
As a vision for the next 30 years, Shonubi Musoke & Co. aims to consolidate alliances in their practice fields and locations, provide an even better and unrivalled level of service, and solidify their status as Uganda’s best law firm.
