Multilaw member firms are carefully chosen.

Kiwanuka Kiryowa, a partner at Kiwanuka & Karugire Advocates, told Chimpreports Tuesday night their decision to join Multilaw was due to the firm’s rapid development in international practice.
“We are increasingly engaged by international clients seeking local representation in Uganda, and also find that many of our local clients have a growing international presence,” said Kiryowa.
“Being part of Multilaw will add value to our client offerings and benefit Uganda at large.”
