Non Government Organization Advisory

We are specialists in the legal and regulatory frameworks for the nonprofit sector in Uganda. We have provided legal advice, structuring and set-up services to countless international and local charities in Uganda and the East African region. We are arguably the prime destination for all legal and tax matters affecting charities in Uganda.

Onyango & Co. Advocates has a wide array of experience advising international and local non-profit organizations in Uganda and the East African region. Most of our lawyers started out working for charities, legal aid projects. We have over the years expanded the team to bring expertise in tax, immigration, corporate advisory and humanitarian law.

In the non-profit sector, we advise non-governmental organizations on a wide range of regulatory compliance, employment and pensions, corporate and tax matters. We leverage the experience and expertise of more than ten separate practice areas to serve our non-profit organization clients, and we are especially strong in key areas of concern for non-profit entities such as legal compliance, regulation, licensing and permitting, employment, immigration, tax, commercial contracts, real estate and dispute resolution.

Because of our specialist practice, we appreciate budget constraints, donor funding and project cycles. It is with this background that we offer pro bono legal assistance to existing NGO clients.

We are proud to have serviced numerous clients in this sector and seen their programs grow.

We offer practical legal advice based on challenges we have experienced with the legal regime in Uganda.
