Welcome to Owiti, Otieno & Ragot Advocates

Over 70 YEARS


The firm of Owiti, Otieno & Ragot Advocates was registered in January 2016 but began its formal operations in June 2018. The firm was created out of a merger between Odhiambo Owiti & Company, that had been in existence since 1997 and Otieno Ragot & Company which had been since 2001. The merger of the two law firms was necessitated by our need to widen our scope of legal practice in terms of the nature of work undertaken and the capacity to perform and discharge our duties to our clients effectively and efficiently.

I was represented better than I could have ever imagined. My needs were put first and I was treated as a friend. My opinions were valued and my doubts were always reassured. My nerves were calmed and the process was always explained. My OOR Lawyer fought hard for me. He went above and beyond and did every-thing he could to ensure a great outcome. I couldn’t have asked for a better law firm or attorney. Thanks guys!!!”

First time I have used OOR & Co, and have been extremely impressed. I required an employment contract review at very short notice, and received an extremely efficient and professional service. Good legal analysis and explanations, combined with common sense and business awareness.
