Scribe Services prides itself in offering dedicated attention to detail in the provision of the whole spectrum corporate services. These include, corporate secretarial support, corporate governance and compliance as well as advisory and training.
The story of Scribe Services began in pre-independence Kenya. Initially, it started off as a firm then known as Angus Lawrie Jeremy & Company, which provided company secretarial and accounting services.
In 1956, EA Registrars was incorporated and took over the company secretarial business until the enactment of the Certified Public Secretaries Act in 1989. Consequently, this necessitated the registration and transfer of the business to Scribe Services. In 2013, Scribe Services demerged leading to the registration of the current Scribe Services Registrars Limited and Scribe Services Secretaries.
