Dundee alumnus takes advisory role in Uganda

University of DundeeAn alumnus of the Centre for Energy, Petroleum and Mineral Law and Policy (CEPMLP) at the University of Dundee – Atipo Ambrose Peter – has been involved in a transaction advisory role regarding a Chinese consortium (led by Tibet Hima Group) and a landmark copper mine privatisation project in Uganda.

Peter, who has an LLM in Energy Law and Policy, heads the Energy, Natural Resources and Infrastructure Practice at Kiiza and Kwanza Advocates, a corporate/commerical law firm based in East Africa. The firm was brought on as transaction advisors to the Chinese consortium. The transaction itself involved the divestment of the government of Uganda interest in the assets of the Kileme Mines Limited for a 25 year concession period. The Kilembe Mines are East Africa's largest copper mine and one one of the most important mining projects for the Government of Uganda. The firm was involved for the bidding, negotiation, award and implementation stage.
