Who's Who Legal Ghana - Arbitration
Mr Thaddeus Sory is held in very high regard by his peers and all who have worked with him – a fact recently reiterated by the Justice of the Court of Appeal of the Republic of Ghana, who presided over the Presidential Commission of Inquiry, appointed in July 2014 to inquire into matters relating to the participation of Ghana’s senior national soccer team (the Black Stars) in the Brazilian World Cup. Before proceedings began at the Commission, Mr Thaddeus Sory, who represented officials of the Ghana Football Association before the Commission, was described by the learned Justice of Appeal as a very brilliant lawyer. Indeed, the proceedings of the day vindicated the Court of Appeal judge's description of Mr Sory – a view shared by another Commissioner, Mr Moses Foh-Amoaning – especially when the newspaper and media accounts of the day referred to Mr Sory as having dazzled the Commission.

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.
