About Us

How We Got Started

While lawyers working with farmers is not very common in Uganda, that’s not the case for us because farmers are people in our lives. As farmers’ kids, we got hands on experience of life on the farm and the legal challenges faced thereon. The knowledge gap, structure and management of a farm make all the difference in profitability level of farm businesses. Working with our families to overcome their legal needs is what inspired us to grow a base of lawyers who understand and are responsive to the legal needs of farmers in Uganda.
