Banking & Finance

Sey & Co has a preeminent banking practice in Ghana. We have a long tradition of representing leading Ghanaian and non-Ghanaian banks in banking transactions of every kind, as well as in regulatory initiatives and legislation, enforcement actions, payment system issues, anti-money laundering and corporate governance issues.

In transactional matters, we have unparalleled experience in bank securities offerings, regularly deal with the disclosure issues facing banks, and have been involved in the development of many creative capital financings by banking organizations.     

Energy

In the oil and gas industry, the 'supermajors' continue to consolidate their global positions, strengthening their businesses up and down the value chain. Continuing liberalization in the energy sectors of our global economy has created new legal frameworks, resulting in greater competition and reduced prices for both businesses and consumers.

Meanwhile, in emerging regions such as Africa, historic under-investment in assets has increased the pressure to upgrade water and waste management facilities.  Our team is involved in advising our clients in different industries throughout the world on all aspects of these developments as they affect their businesses.

The challenge of mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures and strategic alliances is to ensure that the projected value in the deal is realized.

Every corporate transaction demands the right structure, careful risk analysis and forward planning to deliver value and convince the market that the deal makes sense. The anti-trust, regulatory and governance issues must be understood. The finance, tax, employment and intellectual property requirements must be aligned with the strategic objectives of the deal.

We offer unrivaled local expertise on all aspects of corporate transactions wherever they occur.

Real Estate Planning, Development and Management

From conception to completion, no legal transaction presents more variety or greater challenge than real estate development.  Each project involves a different plan, new players and unique dynamics.  Most importantly, it demands that lawyers have the same project-oriented approach shown by developers, architects, engineers and builders. We advise clients in all phases of commercial real estate projects. 

Business Organization and Transactions

Our business transactions experience extends across a broad range of business and commercial transactions, including bankruptcy, corporate finance, intellectual property, executive compensation programs, mergers and acquisitions, employment issues and general business organization and operations.
