A Ghanaian private legal practitioner and partner of the AB and David Africa Law firm, Nana Serwah Godson-Amamoo, is reported dead in the United Arab Emirates after engaging in scuba diving.

She collapsed shortly upon returning to her hotel and died afterward.

Scuba diving is a mode of underwater diving whereby divers use breathing equipment that is completely independent of a surface breathing gas supply and therefore has a limited, variable endurance. 

Nana Serwah was a partner in the Firm’s Natural Resources and Extractive Industries Practice Group. She has over 19 years of experience in energy and the extractive industries. She represents clients on natural resources, energy, mining, and other extractive-related matters and advises on all legal and strategic aspects of the energy and extractives business, including acquisitions, deal structuring, negotiation support and implementation, project development, joint ventures, and local content matters within these sectors.

Nana also headed the Firm’s Government Business and Regulation Practice Group, where she consults on public sector organizational and policy reform assignments. She assists African governments with the development of industry legislation, capacity building, and support for the improvement of systems and people.
