Leading African law firm, TEMPLARS, and fast-growing Ghanaian law firm, FEROCITER are pleased to announce the merger of their Ghanaian operations to create a formidable legal powerhouse in West Africa’s 2nd largest economy.
The merger comes one year after TEMPLARS launched in Ghana in collaboration with legacy AMPEM Chambers. The merger is expected to further bolster TEMPLARS’ capabilities both in dispute resolution and non-contentious transactional work in the Ghana market.
The combined firms, operating under the TEMPLARS brand, will boast of a team of over 150 lawyers (including 21 partners) across four cities in Nigeria and Ghana, leveraging over 49 years of combined experience in both countries and harnessing some of the most skilled legal talents in Sub-Saharan Africa.
This unique combination brings together TEMPLARS’ extensive experience in delivering on some of the continent’s largest, most complex, and most significant projects, transactions, and disputes and FEROCITER’s bold, emergent crop of talented, forward-thinking lawyers with impeccable global credentials and deep-rooted experience of advising domestic, regional and multinational businesses and public authorities in Ghana.
The merger took effect on 1st February 2024 with Augustine Kidisil, serving as the Managing Partner of TEMPLARS Ghana”
