Legal market overview in Ghana

Ghana's legal market continues to benefit from the country's political stability, with the peaceful transfer of power after the 2016 election cementing its reputation for reliability and consistency. Although the production of commodities such as oil, gold and cocoa remains key to the economy, technology, telecoms and insurance are rapidly developing areas of activity. Despite seeing growth, there is little specialisation in the legal market, with most firms acting as general practices. The main talking point has been on power and an excess of electricity supply, which is straining the government's finances.
