The financial- and business-minded lawyer
Combining legal and financial expertise with hands-on business experience, I understand that the business of business is to get things done. It's all about zoning in on the heart of the matter and "cutting to the chase"
I am a business-minded lawyer with over 20 years experience in Investment & Merchant Banking - Corporate Finance(including Mergers & Acquisitions and Capital Raising), Private Equity and Project Finance.
Litigation is not what I normally do. Dealmaking and closing the deal is my focus. Financial and cash flow modelling, business/company valuation, transaction structuring, negotiation, transaction document drafting, closing the deal. That's what I do.
Qualifications: BA(Law), BCompt, LLB
Experience : Webber Wentzel Attorneys - Professional Assistant. Finansbank - Legal Advisor & Manager - Corporate Finance. Nedbank Investment Bank - Executive Consultant - Corporate Finance. Trans Atlantic Securities - Director & Head of Corporate Finance. PSG Capital - Director - Corporate Finance
The practice "Gerhard Swart Attorney" was established in 2010, after a 16-year career in Investment Banking.
My fees are highly competitive and flexible depending on complexity and nature of the mandate.
