Our History

A.B. Patel & Patel’s wealth of experience and tradition of excellence dates back to 1922 when the late Mr. Ambalal Patel, a Barrister from India came to and settled in Mombasa and was enrolled to the Kenyan Bar. Later that same year, his son, the late Mr. Chimanlal A. Patel, was also enrolled to the Bar and joined his father to form the partnership of A.B. Patel & Patel. The partnership was formally registered on 13th January 1952.

The late Ambalal Patel was subsequently appointed to the legislature in Kenya, being the first non-white appointment in the Colonial Government of Kenya.
