BIOGRAPHY

I currently work with the Uganda National Oil Company Ltd (UNOC), a limited liability company wholly owned by the Government of Uganda, whose mandate is to manage commercial interests of the State in Uganda’s nascent petroleum sector. I was among the first three employees of the Company and as such have participated in structuring the company and putting in place. I have also been involved in negotiations of all key agreements that have brought the oil and gas industry in Uganda to the point it as it today. I was part of the lead team that handled the Heritage and Tullow arbitrations and related tax cases that enabled Uganda to collect close to USD 700M in revenue before crude oil production commences.

I previously worked in the litigation office of Uganda Revenue Authority, a body charged with administration and collection of taxes in Uganda. In this position, I appeared before all courts in Uganda and argued most key tax decisions.

I am a qualified lawyer in Uganda, a member of the Uganda Law Society as well as the East African Law Society. I hold a Bachelor of Laws degree from Makerere University, a Post-Graduate diploma in legal practice from Law Development Centre, Kampala and an LLM in Petroleum Taxation and Finance from the University of Dundee, UK. I have had numerous trainings in Arbitration and International tax. My interest is in Oil and Gas, Corporate governance, tax and dispute resolution.
