Peter Muliisa is an Advocate of the High Court of Uganda and surbodinate Courts. I started my Career as a magistrate for a brief period before joining the Litigation office of URA where I have worked for the last 11 years. I am now at the level of manager in this office.
Peter holds an LLB from Makerere University, A diploma in legal practice from law development Centre and an LLM in Petroleum Taxation and Finance from the University of Dundee, UK.
My practice has largely been limited to taxation and tax matters. My interest in arbitration however started from around 2009 when I attended a short course on arbitration in Dubai. Because of this interest in arbitration, my masters’ thesis was on arbitrability of tax disputes. I have also written on Party-appointed arbitrators and impartiality.
In the practical sense, I have been part of a team of counsel representing the Ugandan government in three arbitration matters arising from the taxation disputes relating to oil and gas activities in Uganda. Two of these are concluded while one is on-going.
Peter is a founder member and director in Africa Institute for Minerals, Petroleum and Energy Resources (AIMPER), an Institute whose vision is to make education in the extractive industry and arbitration accessible and affordable to Ugandans.
