Overview

ENSafrica’s large dispute resolution team has extensive experience in advising local and international corporations, financial institutions, governments and regulatory bodies in respect of a wide range of disputes that require proactive and effective solutions across the African continent.

Our dedicated team focuses on dispute avoidance and risk management, with an emphasis on early assessment of the matter and a careful consideration of all aspects before taking action, in order to ensure that we adopt the right strategy to meet your expectations. This means that counsel and advice is obtained before any litigation process is considered.

Our key differentiator is that we have represented numerous clients in prominent, ground-breaking litigation, as well as in cross-border litigation. These high-profile market firsts have involved very complex aspects that are without precedent. .

Recent work highlights:
  • USD42-MILLION court case in the High Court of Justice in which a Ghanaian company which stores petroleum products sued the International Finance Corporation and the OPEC Fund for International Development for damages for alleged wrongful retention of securities.
  • Settlement of debt owed by a Ghanaian warehousing and commodity dealing company to ED&F Man Sugar, a British sugar producer and exporter, after successful representation in a Ghanaian court before proceeding to the arbitration tribunal of the Refined Sugar Association in London.
