Roger Sagana is an Advocate of the High Court of Kenya. He is the firm’s senior partner. His practice spans in a wide range of high profile civil and commercial litigation in the superior courts and in Alternative Dispute Resolution. Roger’s practice areas include land and environmental disputes, constitutional law, administrative law, intellectual property, corporate recovery and insolvency, civil forfeiture, commercial law, public procurement and electoral disputes
In the recent past, he successfully argued the first ever appeal challenging the High Court (Five Judge Bench) judgment that reviewed the delimitation of electoral boundaries by the Independent Electoral Boundaries Commission (IEBC). In a landmark decision, the court of Appeal (also a five-judge bench) upheld his submission that the constitution did not create two institutions (IEBC and the High Court) to carry out the delimitation exercise and if the High Court under Article 89(10) found that IEBC did not comply with the constitutional parameters then it should so advise and direct IEBC to comply. The High Court decision was quashed and the Legal Notice by IEBC reinstated in regard to the appeal.
Mr Sagana recently successfully represented the Governor, Migori County in an election petition that was litigated up to the Supreme Court of Kenya.
Roger is currently a director of the Anti-Counterfeit Agency having been appointed pursuant to section 6(1) (n) of the Anti-counterfeit Act and was a task force member on the implementation of the Environment, Land Use and Natural Resources in line with the provision of Kenya’s new constitution. The task force reviewed all existing legislation and drafted new bills in the said areas.
