Why I don’t charge below Sh. 2 million in legal fees

by biasharadigest

The Law Society of Kenya president Nelson Havi is without a doubt one of the most outspoken legal minds in the country. He does not shy away from what others might consider as controversy either. And since he trounced Harriette Chiggai, Maria Mbeneka and Charles Kanjama to become the head of law society, Havi has certainly transformed the law organization. Whether for good or for bad, opinion is divided amongst lawyers in the country.

But Nelson Havi is also not your ordinary cheap lawyer. His fees match his style. In a recent media view, Havi revealed that he doesn’t charge anything below Sh. 2 million. He argued that a lawyer of his standing cannot charge anything below the Sh. 2 million mark. “Consider it a discount if I charge you anything below Sh. 2 million,” he said.

Havi is also famous for his suave suits, including the Montblanc timepieces that go for as much as Sh. 600,000 each. The lawyer has announced that he will venture into politics in 2022 by contesting for the Westlands parliamentary seat through the ANC party. “I have accepted the request of the people of Westlands Constituency to serve them and the nation in that capacity of an MP effective August 2022 or earlier in the event Parliament is dissolved,” Havi said in the video recording he shared.
