He graduated from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Physics with specialisation in Biomedical Physics.

His intellectual thirst and political aspirations led him to enrol to be trained as a lawyer, which aspiration he successfully accomplished. Consequently, he was called to the Ghana Bar in the year 2012.

As a newly enrolled lawyer, he had his pupillage with a reputable commercial and corporate law firm, Messrs. Kulendi @ Law from October 2012 to August 2013 where he studied under the tutelage of Yonny Kulendi, a renowned Lawyer in Ghana.

His eager desire for personal advancement and diligence saw him being hired as an Associate of the law firm Messrs. Kulendi @ Law. Whilst with Kulendi @ Law, Mr. Jinapor acted as a transactional lawyer for several complex commercial negotiations.

He is one of the finest advocates for the firm in the law courts across the country. As a lawyer, Mr. Jinapor has developed a great capacity for quick thinking and oratory; he has acted as an advocate in prime commercial and corporate Litigation.

Notable among them was his participation as a member of the team of lawyers who acted for the National Communications Authority (NCA) in a dispute relating to the NCA’s policy for Inter-Connect Clearing House.

He has risen to become a Senior Associate and in that capacity he periodically gets assigned to manage a team of lawyers from diverse backgrounds. Over the years he has had the rare responsibility for representing major foreign companies in Ghana as a Solicitor and legal advocate.

Mr. Jinapor skilfully and diligently led a team of lawyers to successfully negotiate a commercial dispute between a reputable Emirati Company and the State Housing Company of Ghana (SHC) in a very complex commercial dispute. He is highly respected and admired by his juniors, colleagues and seniors at the firm due to his excellent inter personal relations as well as his consummate leadership skills.

His interest in Public issues encouraged him to join politics in 2004 and he has since been a widely known Political Activist. His first International Political exposure came when he had the privilege and honour to accompany the then President of the Republic, His Excellency John Agyekum Kuffour on his famous State visit to the United Kingdom in 2007 as a Communication Aide.

A task he executed brilliantly with enormous courage and tenacity, thereby earning the admiration of many. Mr. Jinapor is reputed as a highly driven and dynamic rising young man, energetic, intelligent and resourceful; he combines effective communication skills with detailed legal knowledge to identify commercial opportunities and deliver a satisfactory outcome whilst working alone and as part of a larger team.
