He is very versatile and is a much-respected litigation lawyer in the Republic of Ghana.
He has conducted a number of cases with success in different branches of law and has been variously described as “a battle horse” who “knows all his procedures”, “a fantastic litigation lawyer,” with wide-ranging dispute resolution expertise including alternative dispute resolution especially arbitration.
Thaddeus has been involved in arguably the biggest commercial disputes in the Republic of Ghana. Some of these disputes were resolved through the standard court process, whilst others were resolved by Alternative Dispute Resolution procedures such as arbitration and negotiation.
Thaddeus has been a managing partner of Dery & Co for about ten (10) years.
During this period, he played an instrumental part in building Dery & Co into one of the most reputable law firms in the Republic of Ghana.
Currently, Thaddeus Sory is the Managing Partner at Sory @ Law, a Notary Public, and a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (FCIArb).
Mr Sory’s basic academic experiences started in Bawku – North of Ghana – where he continued to the Notre Dame Seminary Secondary School and the Nandom Secondary School before entering the law school of the University of Ghana.
During his time in the university, Mr. Sory held the position of the legal advisor to Akuafo Hall and then became the Electoral Commissioner of the same hall.
He subsequently became the Deputy Electoral Commissioner of the university’s Students Representative Council and that of the National Union of Ghana Students (NUGS).
He supervised the elections which saw the current Communications Minister, Haruna Iddrisu become the president of NUGS.
Thaddy, as his friends casually call him, was called to the bar in October 1999 after a two-year professional training at the Ghana Law School. “Frightening”, is how he describes his first appearance in court to work on a case alone.
