Who are we?

We are experienced in dispute resolution; specialising in international arbitration, consultancy, fraud investigation, asset tracing, and mediation.

Africa is experiencing its longest economic boom. Driven by dramatic investment in mineral resources, energy, transport and infrastructure, Africa is widely recognised as the fastest growing continent in the world.

JMiles & Co. is a legal services entity that provides specialised services in the fields of international arbitration, investigation and legal consulting out of Africa. We are strategically based in Kenya and are well positioned to provide comprehensive legal advice to international investors across Africa. The JMiles & Co. strategy is to provide clients with cost effective legal advice across Africa without any reduction in quality of work. JMiles & Co. is one of the only legal entities in Africa that specialises purely in International Arbitration and fraud/asset chasing investigations out of Africa.

The JMiles & Co. team is experienced in dispute resolution and in particular international arbitration and in fraud and asset tracing investigations. We have worked consistently with African governments and international corporations both on the continent and elsewhere across the world. The team consists of lawyers who have qualified and practiced in England, Kenya and Singapore thereby offering sound legal advice and a deep understanding of the legal and commercial realities of the continent. This team understands Africa.

JMiles & Co. is headed by John Miles who is well known for his international arbitration and fraud/asset recovery related work, having been a litigation and arbitration partner in Denton Wilde Sapte (as it then was), Mayer Brown and Hunton & Williams, before relocating to Africa in 2006 to chair ALN.

In February 2014, John was selected as the sole Kenyan member of the International Chamber of Commerce’s FraudNet organisation, the leading independent network of lawyers specialising in fraud, white collar crime and asset recovery. John is the only FraudNet member in the East African region.

Through John’s membership in FraudNet, the firm has working relationships with many of the top fraud recovery lawyers in the world. These relationships are significant as speed and local expertise is of paramount importance in securing international injunctions and other forms of pre-emptive relief.
