AB & David is a West African business law firm that operates from three offices in Ghana. It represents international and local and public and private sector clients and development financial institutions seeking to do business or execute projects across West Africa. The firm works in other West African countries through a network of selected law firms.
AB & David is the first African law firm to secure the Lexcel quality mark, the recognised international accreditation awarded by the Law Society of England & Wales.
The firm is rated as one of the leading law firms in Ghana and commended by its clientele for its "great commercial perspective and dedicated service", "taking an interest in the business of the client and adding value", (Chambers & Partners Global); “the service is good and they challenge us, challenge our view and provide very valuable input on how to mitigate risks” (IFLR 1000).
AB & David is not all about making profit. Through its business impact sessions, the firm provides fora for the public and private sector in Africa to interact and share ideas on the impact of law and policy on business.
The firm also believes in giving back to the society that has given it the opportunity to serve and expand so robustly. AB & David spends 10% of its billable hours on pro bono work by providing free legal services to persons who cannot pay the full cost of their services.
AB & David also provides discounted legal services to non-governmental and charitable organizations pursuing causes that it believes in and identify with.
