Lisa Obeng

Lisa is a dual-qualified English and Ghanaian lawyer. Lisa studied law at Exeter University before taking the Legal Practice Course (by which lawyers in England qualify as solicitors) and the Post Call in Ghana. In 2017, Lisa undertook a post-graduate course in International Conflict Management at the International Peace and Security Institute in Bologna, Italy.

Since joining Egality Law, Lisa has developed a focus in complex commercial law matters, advising on an acquisition of a Ghanaian subsidiary of a UK company, advising multinational NGOs on a range of corporate law issues and drafting pleadings for a forthcoming landmark Constitutional case in the Supreme Court of Ghana which will be of significance to anti-corruption institutions internationally.

Lisa is immensely interested in human rights law and justice, and this resulted in her undertaking an internship with the Protection Unit of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Branch Office in Accra, Ghana, in 2014, and an additional internship with the Human Rights Unit of the office of the United Nations Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate (CTED), New York in 2015. It is this passion for human rights and justice that informed her decision to become an international lawyer.
