The leading law firm Kimathi & Partners is one of our Silver Sponsors for the virtual #2021USGhanaBusinessForum, slated for 8th to 9th September 2021, under the theme; Promoting U.S.-Ghana Partnership through Trade and Investment.
Kimathi & Partners is unquestionably one of the best law firms in Ghana and a crucible for gifted young lawyers. They 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 them one of the top 3 corporate law firms in Ghana advising Global Multinationals, Fortune 500 companies and Foreign Governments and their agencies.
The focus of the 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.
Kimathi & Partners is a specialized firm. So they are not, and do not strive to be the law firm of every company. Their 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 and complex disputes.
Their reputation for excellence is no secret. They outshine their competitors because they are more responsive, more solution-oriented, deliver quality work and run a 24-hour practice.
100% of their top 40 Global Multinationals, Multilateral Agencies, Foreign Governments, and Fortune 500 clients came from competing top tier law firms in Ghana.
The American Chamber of Commerce, Ghana, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and our partners, Embassy of Ghana, Washington DC, United States Commercial Service, Ghana Investment Promotion Centre, and the Ghana – Houston Chamber of Commerce are grateful for the support.
The US-Ghana Business Forum is an annual flagship, high-level meeting between U.S, Ghanaian Government Officials, and Businesses aimed at deepening diplomatic and commercial partnerships between Ghana and the United States.
The 2021 Forum is premised on the theme: Promoting U.S.-Ghana Partnership through Trade and Investment and comes on the back of Ghana’s hosting of the Africa Continent Free Trade Area Secretariat and also after several months of trading through the AfCFTA. The AfCFTA is the world’s largest free trade area in terms of number of countries encompassing 1.2 billion people and about US$2.5 trillion. The AfCFTA presents a window for African countries and their trading partners to take advantage of the many trade and investment opportunities created. Trading partners who had hitherto focused on bilateral trade relations, now have the opportunity to reach larger African markets through the AfCFTA.
The 2021 Forum aims to strengthen trade and investment, promote business partnerships, and opportunities between U.S. and Ghanaian Companies in key sectors including: Technology and digitization, Energy and Mining, Infrastructure, Manufacturing, Services and Franchising. The forum will also review trading under the AfCFTA and assess how U.S. and Ghanaian companies can take advantage of this opportunity.
The event will be virtual to be held over two days. The forum will have several sessions including plenary with high-level government officials as speakers; panel discussions on sectors involving experts and senior U.S. and Ghanaian Officials and leaders from the business community. It will serve as a platform to explore new business opportunities and address regulatory challenges affecting trade and investment. Further access details will be sent following registration.
