I am an experienced sole practitioner, offering sophisticated,quality work .  I have frequently successfully litigated/resolved disputes in high profile matters, including most recently in the "secret ballot" case in the Constitutional Court, where I acted for an amicus curiae (United Democratic Movement v Speaker of the National Assembly and Others  CCT/89/2017). I have experience in various areas of law and represent/have represented a number of chief executive officers, managing directors and senior management as well as companies, non profit organisations, parties and individuals in relation to disputes. Areas of practice include administrative law, constitutional law, commercial law,  labour law, unlawful competition and   mass disaster claims. In addition, a large part of my practice is devoted to advising clients on will and estates and administering estates.

I offer personal service and am dedicated to work that I do for clients.

I commenced practice for my own account in October 2007, having previously worked at medium and small sized firms offering quality work in Johannesburg. I first practised law at a well-known Manhattan law firm in the late 1980s, after completing an LLM at the University of Pennsylvania, USA in 1987.   I have a BA (1983) LLB (1986) from the University of the Witwatersrand. I am admitted as an attorney, notary and coveyancer in South Africa, and as an attorney in New York, USA.
