Daniel Ortega

Of Counsel

Daniel’s practice focuses on charitable and Non-governmental organisations(“NGOS”), including major foreign registered NGO’S organisations , private clubs and churches. As such, he has extensive experience in dealing with the unique legal issues faced by not-for-profit and charitable organizations.

Daniel regularly provides strategic advice to help clients stay in compliance with the complex regulatory regimes that apply to charitable and not-for-profit organizations. 

Much of his recent work has been to assist clients with the transition to compliance and governance under the Non-Governmental Organisations, Act 2016, which is the principal law regulating charities in Uganda. Daniel also has an active pro bono practice and has specialised in fighting for the rights of communities that have been displaced as a result of war and refugees from South Sudan, Eritrea, and Democratic Republic of Congo.
