Leading Law Firm in Ghana

Kwame & Associates is unquestionably one of the best law firms in Ghana and a crucible for gifted young lawyers. We are ranked as a tier 1/top tier law firm in Ghana by The Legal 500 in the following practice areas: Banking, Finance, M&A, Commercial, Corporate, Energy, Infrastructure, Projects and Disputes making us one of the top 3 corporate law firms in Ghana advising Global Multinationals, Fortune 500 companies and Foreign Governments and their agencies. We are available to our clients on weekends and after working hours.

The focus of our firm is to provide top notch legal service comparable to what clients receive from top tier law firms in New York or London to foreign governments, global multinationals and Fortune 500 companies doing business in Ghana.

We are a specialized firm. So we are not, and do not strive to be the law firm of every company. Our goal is to be the firm of choice (which we are) for global multinationals with respect to their most challenging legal issues, most significant business transactions and most critical disputes.

Our reputation for excellence is no secret. We outshine our competitors because we are more responsive, more solution oriented, deliver quality work and virtually run a 24 hour practice.

100% of our top 40 Global Multinationals, Multilateral Agencies, Foreign Governments and Fortune 500 clients came from competing top tier law firms in Ghana.

In addition, we counsel:

  • 9 fortune 500 companies doing business in Ghana.
  • Agencies of the 3 most developed countries in the world.
  • Subsidiaries of 2 of the top 10 most valuable companies in the world.
  • Over 40 Global Multinationals doing business in Ghana.
  • Embassies of 2 of the most developed countries in the world.

We keep our word. We keep our integrity. We keep our manners. And we keep our passion. Always.

We have a strict anti-bribery and anticorruption policy. Thus, we do not give or accept anything that looks, sounds, feels or very faintly smells like a bribe or kickback.

The Whitaker Group

I highly recommend Kwame & Associates, Corporate Attorneys. Kimathi has served as our legal counsel with integrity and distinction after we completed an exhaustive search for attorneys in Ghana and tried a few others. We have been quite satisfied. His Harvard training has also helped in that he understands both US and Ghanaian law. We have not been at all disappointed and I am confident that you will be very pleased as well. In short, I highly recommend Kimathi without reservation.
