PROFILE My name is Alexander Bondzie Impraim, I’m a lawyer with keen interest in the following: I. Aviation specifically drones. II. Maritime ( customs valuation and classification) III. Governance and Leadership IV. National security. As part of my legal practice I am really passionate about litigation and commercial practice more especially negotiations regarding terms of settlement. The irony about me is that in as much as I am passionate about litigation, I have a strong bias for ADR. My current new found love is the aviation industry, focusing on the use of drones and its threats to National Security. This found love caught my attention when I became a member of a committee set up by the Ministry of National Security to draft a National Policy on the use of drones. I enjoy the blend of my background in business, governance and leadership in the practice of law which makes me a dynamic professional. What really keeps me going is research and my curiosity for adventure.
