Henry, Samuelson & Co
Henry, Samuelson & Co., abridged H S & Co., is an international commercial and corporate mainly law firm. Yet, the attorneys of the firm are engaged in general practice to serve the diverse needs of both our local and international clientele.
Having all the forensic skills at our disposal, Henry, Samuelson & Co. offers a full range of legal services with expertise and experience as we engage in litigation proceedings before the courts of common law (courts with ordinary jurisdiction and courts with special jurisdiction) and the specialized courts of Cameroon.
We are also expeditious and expedient. This has come to guarantee the efficiency and effectiveness of proceedings. A great majority of matters handled by our humble selves have brought reverberating success to clients. So far our client-base is Africa, Middle East, Far East, Western Europe and the Americas.
Henry, Samuelson & Co. operates from a plush office in McSamuel Tower (top floor) a magnificent edifice planted in the heart of the snobbish neighbourhood of Bali, near the Central Business District of Akwa, one or two minutes away from the Douala Stock Exchange and the major banks. McSamuel Tower, being own property, provides both spatial stability for us your solicitors and safety for your rather important documents in our keeping.
Here our chambers is five minutes away from the court system of Douala.
Our seat is in Douala, the economic nerve centre of Cameroon, just 25 minutes away from Yaoundé, the seat of the institutions.
We have a rich Library (updated) containing all the practice documents required for the bijural system of Laws in Cameroon (English Common Law and French Civil Law), which systems of law we have the privilege to master to the admiration of our contemporaries. We do not miss any publication of the Supreme Court of Cameroon.
We also have a standing order of the Official Gazette of Cameroon which publishes all the new laws and amendments thereof as enacted by the legislators. For this reason, we are always abreast (not to say ahead) of current legislations.
We are bilingual in English (the vehicle of the English Common Law) and French (the vehicle of the French Civil Law). Since these are also our national languages, we are able to communicate complex concepts to you, the other party and the courts in simple language.
We see you, our client, as an active partner in our business. So we treat you with care and serve you with respect, knowing that since you took the reins of power in our practice you have not relinquished it. Your interests are always our chief concern. Thus a clear understanding of your ultimate objective is a key component in the custom-building of any individual case. In this personal approach we adopt a positive, authoritative stance with the belief that it is only in this way your interests are best served.
In sum we are a subtle set of meticulous professionals. We pay breathless attention to our work, thinking ourselves into it and serving our clients with style. Once engaged, we leave nothing to chance, as we are accurate in our responses and time-efficient. Matters handled by us do not suffer undue delays. Plus, we do a minute-by-minute reporting to our clients, thanks to our modern practice that utilises state-of-the-art technology.
Because we believe in optimising (not maximising) the fees our clients pay for the services we render, our charges remain very competitive. And given the quality of our services, our clients always have their money’s worth and frequently more. The proof is that we cannot count the number of occasions clients have called or written to say “thanks for your excellent work… We shall be working a lot with you”. To be brief, we keep our clients for long (not to say forever).
