The Firm’s Managing Partner Kuukua Maurice Ankrah is a Commissioned Immigration Officer who worked in the Legal Department, Migration Information Bureau and the work permit unit of the Ghana Immigration Service at the Head Quarters in Accra for many years. She has therefore built considerable expertise in immigration related matters such as the acquisition, extension or renewal of work and residence permits, obtaining immigrant quotas for investors and ‘foreign’ employees and legal representation of clients at Ghana Immigration Service and the Ministry of Interior inquiry hearings.

Our approach

We work closely with our clients, their family offices, our colleagues, and a wealth of international advisers across various jurisdictions to understand our clients’ full needs and circumstances. We arrive at practical and bespoke solutions, putting in place comprehensive and coordinated immigration strategies which take into account a wide range of considerations, such as tax planning and children’s educational needs.

Drawing on our wide-ranging expertise, we manage complex cases which often fall outside the scope of the immigration rules, or where previous visa non-compliance or refusals have left clients in difficult situations. Our team has many years’ experience working with the Home Office, achieving excellent outcomes for clients previously facing immigration difficulties. Where we need to, we act for clients in judicial review applications, administrative reviews and appeals.

Immigration advice for high net worth individuals and their families

High net worth individuals and their families come to us for strategic advice and an overview of the most suitable immigration routes available to them. This often involves investor visas, spouse visas, student visas for their children, and visas for relatives either wishing to visit or permanently settle in Ghana.

Where people have lived in the Ghana for several years, we are able to assist with applications for permanent residence, indefinite leave to remain and citizenship applications.

Immigration advice for organisations, businesses and entrepreneurs

Overseas businesses come to us looking to obtain working visas for their senior executives, as do entrepreneurs looking to expand their businesses in Ghana. Similarly, we act as trusted advisers to Ghana employers on everything from sponsorship licence applications and securing visas for talent shortages, domestic workers, and temporary staff.

We recognise that Brexit remains a source of concern for many people and companies both in the UK and overseas. We have been advising individuals and organisations on their options post-Brexit. This includes applications for EU nationals and their family members at all stages of their immigration process, starting from pre-arrival visas to permanent residence and British citizenship applications.
