Professional services association Andersen Global is continuing its expansion in the African market, this time through the establishment of a presence in Ghana. Sam Okudzeto & Associates – a Ghana based law firm – is the latest firm to join the Andersen Global association, giving it a further foothold in Africa.

The addition of a Ghana collaborating firm now takes Andersen Global’s presence in Africa to 13 countries, a number of which have been added in recent months. Key financial centres across Africa are rapidly becoming exciting investment prospects due to their young populations and vibrant business environment, drawing a number of firms to the region.

Over the course of last year, Andersen global extended its African operations to add at least four countries. In January, the firm added a collaborating firm in Uganda to its association, following the addition of a presence in Kenya. The precedent taken by East Africa reflects the vibrance of the region as an economic centre.

Later in the year, the association added collaborating firms in Mozambique and Angola to its operations. Now, the firm has made an addition in West Africa, with the addition of Ghana to its umbrella operations. Ghana is rapidly emerging as a economic force in West Africa, drawing substantial amounts of tourism and business alike.

Sam Okudzeto & Associates is a law firm in Ghana that has been operational for nearly five decades, offering legal support to a number of clients in the corporate and commercial space. This includes consulting on mergers & acquisitions, tax, corporate banking, debt recovery, and a number of other domains.

Sam Okudzeto, who is a founder at the legal advisory firm, said of the new development, “There is so much opportunity for growth in Ghana and throughout Africa. I’m confident that our collaboration with Andersen Global will take us to the next level and broaden our abilities in the region. We will be able to continue providing best-in-class services in the market and bring a seamless association of experts throughout the world to an expanded base of clients.”

Andersen Global Chairman Mark Vorsatz added, “Not only are they considered legal industry leaders in Ghana, but Sam and his team bring additional depth and breadth to our capabilities in Africa. Adding a sought-after firm like Sam Okudzeto & Associates is not only a logical extension for Andersen Global, but it broadens our offering in the region and is a key part of our Africa strategy."
