In recent times, The Firm provides legal support and insight into the regulatory landscape of the insolvency and restructuring regime of Ghana towards the implementation of the newly passed Corporate Insolvency and Restructuring Act (CIRA), 2020 (Act 1015). Our role involves an extensive review of the Insolvency Laws of Ghana, the Draft Regulations, and the Ghana Association of Restructuring and Insolvency Advisors (GARIA) Bill and the facilitation of pieces of training and workshops.
The Firm has been engaged by an infrastructure development company to advise on the construction and financing of a Cable Car Transport System on a Build Own Transfer modelbetween our Client and the Ministry of Transportation. In line with our advice on the transaction, we prepared the Concession Agreement in respect of a cable car transportation system, to be executed between the Government of Ghana as represented by the Ministry of Transport and our Client. The Firm also advised on the requisite regulatory compliance and the necessary due diligence in respect of the project. The Project is a first of its kind in Ghana and will improve travel time on busy roads by eliminating traffic congestion and improving riding quality and safety for road users and pedestrians.
In addition, we are often instructed on corporate governance, internal compliance training, and monitoring as it pertains to both local and international laws such as the UK Bribery Act and the USA Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
