Legal Practitioners of Choice
Steady Munyanyi (United Kingdom), Managing Director, Diamond Studios
“Some years ago, my recording label had a commercial dispute with another recording label. The matter was referred to the High Court of Zimbabwe. During the hearing, the other recording label was represented by Kanokanga & Partners which impressed me with its professionalism and advocacy. Needless to say, my recording label lost the case. From that time I dumped my then lawyers and engaged Kanokanga & Partners as my new lawyers. Since then, Kanokanga & Partners have remained my legal practitioners of choice. Working with them is such a joy.”
High Moral Integrity – Competent Lawyer
The Honourable Mr. Justice S V Mubako, Zimbabwe’s Former Ambassador to the USA “Mr. Davison Kanokanga is well known to me.
As a legal practitioner he appeared before me on a number of occasions, when I was a Judge of the High Court of Zimbabwe. I find that he is a competent lawyer and a person of high moral integrity. I know that he is highly thought of by other Judges of both the High Court and Supreme Court of Zimbabwe. Prior to my becoming a Judge of the High Court of Zimbabwe I had the privilege of working with him in his firm Kanokanga & Partners for a year. I found him a pleasant and honest person to work with and indeed in his dealings with other people as well. I wholeheartedly recommend him as a professional man and a businessman.”
Mrs L Beechey, Bakels Zimbabwe (Pvt) Ltd, Harare, Zimbabwe “Our very first dealings with Kanokanga and Partners were clear we were in highly capable hands. The extensive legal services provided were handled with extreme professionalism – from the initial contact to the request for information and to the handling and execution of each litigation. Lawsuits can be very uncomfortable and stressful while you are going through the process, but Kanokanga and Partners are active listeners and made us feel very comfortable and kept us informed about each case every step of the way, understanding our unique requirements. We endorse and recommend them as a provider of Legal Services.”
