(BUSINESS WIRE)-- International law firm Dorsey & Whitney LLP announced today that a team of its lawyers has just won an important victory for its client the Republic of Ghana before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

The case arose after the capital City of Accra, Ghana, sought to hire a contractor to reconstruct its sewage systems.
