The Lyson Law Group

The Lyson Law Group is a full service Practice established to provide world class service with a personalized Tanzanian touch and a particular attention to detail.

The Firm which was established in October 2019 by Victor Mwakimi and Ms. Lige James, two experienced attorneys desirous of providing quality legal services in a prompt and reliable manner, and all the while maintaining the key values of integrity, hard work and loyalty; loyalty to both our clients and to our noble profession.

In late February of 2021, Lawrence K. Masha Sr., the former Managing Partner of two prominent Dar es Salaam based firms, left retirement to join Lyson Law as its Chairman and full-time partner. Mr. Masha’s joining of the Firm brings to Lyson Law over 25 years of experience in legal practice, government service and corporate leadership.

Lyson Law encourages its clients to avoid unnecessary litigation by employing zero case strategies, based on the principle that “Prevention is better than a cure”. This is achieved through assisting our clients to conduct regular in-house compliance checks based on each client’s unique business model coupled with the provision of well researched legal opinions as and when requested thus mitigating risk factors that may lead to litigation. We are of the firm belief that litigation should always be a last resort. However, in the case of contentious disputes, should mediation and arbitration fail, the Team at Lyson Law shall always be prepared to defend our Clients’ interests with vigour.
