Minkah-PREMO & CO. is a firm that has lawyers practicing as members of AKOSOMBO CHAMBERS and staff of varied backgrounds providing integrated legal services.
Minkah-PREMO & CO. was established out of the need for an improvement in the justice delivery system. The system was plagued with low standards, snail-paced results and unsatisfactory conditions in which lawyers had to work, culminating in client dissatisfaction with the entire judicial process and precipitating the need for the firm to be set up to improve the justice delivery experience for our clients.
It was the desire and vision to commence and achieve positive change from this that compelled Mr. Justice Kusi-Minkah Premo, a lawyer called to the Ghana Bar in 1984, to set up Minkah-PREMO & CO. (AKOSOMBO CHAMBERS), after stints with the State Insurance Corporation, Kwaku Baah & Co. and Kokroko Chambers. In all three places, lessons in the direction of law practice, service delivery and worker relations were learnt.
Some of the weaknesses which cried for attention were poor emolument (which affected workers’ motivation), poor infrastructure (which affected workers’ productivity and client convenience) and poor worker relations (which affected teamwork and client satisfaction).
These became useful raw materials in the mental process of creating and establishing a law firm that would achieve service beyond client expectation, job satisfaction and faith in the legal process.
