Areas of practice

What we specialize in and how we do it.

We also provide compliance and, company secretarial, business support and all aspects of incorporating and running a company in Ghana.

Dispute resolution

Legal disputes are costly, time-consuming and disruptive to business. We do all we can to help our clients avoid litigation. Our aim is to settle disputes out of court to save costs, but our team is fully dedicated to ensuring the best interests of our clients are met should the dispute enter the court room.

BANN & Associates encourages arbitration and mediation as a way of resolving disputes and saving clients’ time. Our approach is focused on a strategy that analyses the strength the evidence, likely cost in a win or lose scenario and whether the dispute can be settled. We give practical advice when to settle and when to enter the courtroom.

Art law

Ghana has an emerging contemporary art market with Ghanaian artwork gaining worldwide exposure. This has resulted in high value art transactions locally and internationally. At BANN & Associates we support art dealers and artists through primary and secondary high value art transactions. We also advise clients seeking to protect artwork by creating trusts or through inheritance, trademarks, and copyright laws.

  • Ensuring all local laws and procedural requirements are complied with
  • Facilitating meetings with the Department of Social Welfare and other government bodies involved in the inter-country application process in Ghana
