Ellen Bannerman-Quist is a female lawyer of remarkable distinction and professionalism. While we worked together at the Ministry of Justice’s International Law Division I was struck by her hard work, attention to detail & assiduous research capacity. She brought a bouquet of unique skills to her work as state attorney which made her an invaluable member of the team and as a leader. She is equally at home in the international legal arena because of her background in law in England. This external training coupled with further professional exposure in America & other international fora & her fluency in the French language gives Ellen a reach in the law beyond Ghana’s borders. The vast experience & exposure Ellen has obtained while working in the Ghanaian & West African energy sector makes her a major authority in the African energy sector especially in terms of scrutiny of contracts and negotiations. Through sheer hard work she reached the pinnacle of the legal ladder in Ghana’s major energy authority. I would not hesitate to recommend Ellen for legal work both in Ghana and other African countries.
