Our story

In 1903, about nine years after the British had declared Uganda a British Protectorate, a law graduate from the University of Dublin and recently called to the English Bar, Dr. Henry Hamilton Hunter and Mr. George Greig set up a law practice initially at Entebbe under the name Hunter & Greig Advocates. This pracice is widely recognized as the first law practice to be set up in Uganda. This law practice would later evolve into Kateera & Kagumire Advocates in 1994 and H&G Advocates in 2021. For a period of over 100 years, the law practice has stayed true to the same values of precision and excellence in the provision of legal services.

The Firm has been continuously recognized for the exceptional legal talent it attracts in the legal services industry and has also been characterized by its retention of notable practitioners throughout its existence and unmatched excellence in service delivery.

With a team of lawyers trained both locally and internationally to ensure that our clients get the best services available in the country, H&G Advocates remains unparalleled in providing world class solutions to clients in a wide range of industries and sectors like Banking & Finance, Energy & Power, Oil & Gas, Intellectual property among others.
