Peter was a long-serving Director of Public Prosecutions and Solicitor General for the Government of Uganda and, at one time, Principal Crown Counsel in Lesotho. Joseph was the head of Civil Litigation in the Attorney General’s chambers for a number of years. They are assisted by three associate partners: John Jet Tumwebaze, Bruce Musinguzi and Augustine Idoot, two senior associates: Isaac Newton Kyagaba and John Musiime and three associates: Nicholas Kihangire, John Bulungu, Phoebe Murungi, Raymond Mwebesa and Thomas Katto.
Our Litigation team represents our clients in commercial disputes, land disputes, election and constitutional petitions, disputes arising under employment law and taxation, and international arbitration. The team has also acted as defence attorney for several clients and, when called to do so, as private prosecutors. Team members also work under the guidance of Justice Ntabgoba, who is our full-time consultant.
