History of the Firm
MINKAH-PREMO, OSEI-BONSU, BRUCE-CATHLINE & PARTNERS (MPOBB) is a firm that has lawyers and staff of varied backgrounds providing integrated legal services. The firm has its roots in Minkah-Premo & Co (MPAC) which was established in 1996 through the joint vision of Justice Kusi-Minkah Premo and Stephen Oppong J.A. With a vision to build a commonwealth for lawyers in private practice, it started its operation from Kumasi and extended it to Accra, with its office location at Adabraka, near Graphic Road. The Accra practice was run by Justice Kusi-Minkah Premo and Wallace Bruce-Cathline as Partners and was later joined by Isaac Emmil Osei-Bonsu.
The Board of the firm which was set up as a limited liability expanded to include Akenten Appiah Menkah (a lawyer, politician and prominent industrialist), Professor Ofosu-Armaah (an eminent lawyer and academic) as Chairman and James Victor Gbeho (a diplomat) as the first non-executive directors. Until the expansion, the firm was solely guided by its Honorary Partner, Ehunabobirim Prah Agyensaim VI, Paramount Chief of the Assin Owirenkyi Traditional Area (Assin Kushea), known in private life as Wellington E. Jonah.
The firm grew to have a Sunyani office which was run by Hon Kwasi Ameyaw Cheremeh. In May 2002, the firm relocated to its current location in Labone. After several expansions, the Accra branch of the firm is now housed in a built-for-purpose six-floor office building on the Labone site, known as Bruce Towers.
As a commonwealth for lawyers the firm grew to have more equity partners comprising Premo, Bruce-Cathline, Oppong, Ameyaw, Osei-Bonsu, Akuoko, Gyau, Akwesi, Owusu Ansah and Adu Boahen. For his elevation to the bench, Oppong JA exited the firm just as Hon Cheremeh did to enable him pursue political office. Cheremeh’s exit eventually brought an end to the Sunyani branch.
With lawyers in Accra and Kumasi specializing in various branches of law, the firm prides itself as a conservative but dynamic legal services provider.
