Founder's Message

Swiftlaw exists to take a bite-sized aspect of doing business in Ghana and make it simpler.

We realize the relative hassle involved in setting up a business, opening company bank accounts, protecting trademarks or registering a company with a public institution can be and we simplified the process.

Swiftlaw allows you to incorporate a business, register a trademark, register with a public body and even goes a step further to recommend ancillary services that a business may need such as website development or printing of complimentary cards, all by filling out one form on our website.

The team, comprising lawyers, laymen and software engineers has been dedicated to refining, condensing and optimizing the process to ensure that it is as seamless, practical easy to follow and efficient as possible.

 

In addition to simplifying the process, a major concern of ours was keeping the cost of the service low, so that many more people can start a business, to that end we have made it much cheaper to start a business than ever before.

In the not too distant future and as the demand grows we will venture into making other aspects of doing business in Africa simpler for you. In the mean time we hope that you will enjoy using the service as much as we did creating it.

Please do take time to peruse our website to see all the services we offer and in the immortal words of Lewis Carrol in Alice in Wonderland: “Begin at the beginning……and go on till you come to the end: then stop.”
