Mr Thaddeus Sory is the founding and managing partner at Sory@Law, a newly established law firm in Accra, Ghana. Thaddeus has been in active legal practice since October 1999, after being called to the Ghana Bar. Prior to setting up Sory@Law, he practised as a pupil with Bimi Dery & Co (later Dery & Co), one of Ghana’s leading law firms. Indeed, the success of Dery & Co as one of the leading law firms in Ghana is largely credited to Thaddeus – managing partner of Dery & Co from around 2002.
He has extensive experience as an arbitrator and commercial litigator and has had remarkable success in a wide range of legal fields, such as commercial law, insurance, mergers and acquisitions, banking and finance, construction, sports, real estate, constitutional and administrative law. He has tremendous experience in litigation and has been involved in arguably the biggest commercial, constitutional and administrative law disputes in the Republic of Ghana. He has also assisted and advised offshore counsel in foreign arbitration proceedings on issues of Ghanaian law.
Thaddeus has been a lawyer for the Ghana Football Association for almost a decade. He has not only represented such state institutions as, among others, the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice, the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly, the National Commission on Civic Education and the Volta River Authority in a number of disputes, but has also advised and acted for such corporate institutions as the Ghana Commercial Bank, Unibank, National Investment Bank, GLICO General Insurance Company Limited, Metropolitan Life Insurance Company Limited among others and has also been a resource person at workshops for a number of charitable institutions such as WaterAid, ActionAid, and the Legal Resources Centre.
