Legal market overview

Following the general election in December 2016, Ghana has seen some changes concerning reform in the financial market, including the increase in minimum capital requirements for lenders from 120m cedis to 400m cedis (roughly $91m). Firms expect this move to strengthen the country's banking and finance sector and lead to an increase in foreign investments.

Other developments of note include continued growth in the energy space, particularly concerning solar projects, while the market is also likely to see an increase in infrastructure projects with the expected passing of a new PPP Bill.

Major domestic firms include Bentsi-Enchill, Letsa & Ankomah, ENSafrica and Kimathi & Partners, Corporate Attorneys.

There is a separate Foreign firms table and editorial to highlight international firms that have a significant presence in Ghana without having an office on the ground.
