Pamela Disu

Legal Advisor

Pam has a stellar legal background having read law at the University of Cambridge. Pam received her legal training at American firm Shearman & Sterling before moving on to the largest law firm in the world, DLA Piper LLP. 

Pam joined the London office of eleQtra, the principal developer for InfraCo Africa, in September 2016. It is with eleQtra, that Pam advises on the legal aspects of development projects in Ghana, Uganda, Zambia, Mozambique and other sub-saharan African countries in the eleQtra portfolio. 

Prior to this, Pam was Legal Counsel and Transactions Advisor within the PPP Unit at the Rwanda Development Board (RDB). This role involved leading the Government of Rwanda in negotiating complex private investments in the energy and infrastructure sector in Rwanda. With RDB, Pam closed transactions with an investment value of more than $450 million. Her role at RDB also included capacity building and delivering training workshops and seminars for the PPP Unit and other ministries including Ministry of Infrastructure and Rwanda Energy Group.

On a personal note, Pam was born in the UK to Ghanaian parents. Pam expertly intertwines her Ghanaian heritage and British sensibilities to bring an Afropolitan perspective to everything she does. Pam feels very passionately about supporting the ambitions of those that come after her and is the co-director of a mentoring programme for black and ethnic minority lawyers in the UK called Creating Pathways through Mentoring and Sponsorship. The programme is sponsored by Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP and the Black Solicitors Network City branch.
