Because of a more realistic and market determined exchange rate, privatisation of state-owned companies, liberalisation of trade and relaxation of controls, Ghana’s investment climate is very congenial to both local and foreign investors.

In response to the growing needs of these investors, Fugar & Company provides the necessary legal advice and services ranging from advising on Ghanaian investment law and procedures to project planning and documentation.

The firm represents investors in obtaining the appropriate licences from the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC) and other governmental agencies. Fugar & Company has been instrumental in and has been an industry leader in the setting up of major investment companies in the areas of:

  • cellular telecommunications network in Ghana;
  • a major explosives factory;
  • the setting up of a medical laboratory and clinical pathology company; and,
  • the shipping and mercantile business.

Fugar and Company has also played a leading role in the setting up of other major companies in mining, leasing and finance, security services, construction, television and film production.
