About Me

Hello Everyone! Just a bit of history to assist you in understanding my professional background. 

I completed both my Bachelor of Law and Masters of Law (2006) at the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal. Following completion of Articles of Clerkship in 2009, I then opted to enter the corporate sector. As of 2011 I have had the privilege of holding the title as Head: Legal and Compliance for national and international companies and in October 2015, decided to join the Gauteng Independent Bar of Advocates.  

During the last few years as Legal Counsel for large national and international Companies, I have developed a passion and love for business gaining extensive experience in Company Law, Commercial Law, Commercial Negotiations, Contract Law and Drafting (national and international), Financial transactions, Construction Law (FIDIC and JBCC) Compliance (Anti-trust, Anti-Money Laundering, Anti-Corruption) Compliance Training, Board Management, Advertising law, Mergers and Acquisitions, Employment Law, Corporate Governance, Risk management and assessment, Audits, Regulatory and statutory advising and the like.

What has become increasingly evident during my journey is that most companies, entrepreneurs, large corporates and SMEs alike are in need of not only quality expert legal services, but also require lawyers on board who actually share a desire to engage and understand their core business. 

Ultimately this is what DLC offers you – a truly personal and engaged experience with the ultimate goal to give you a comprehensive legal service to ensure that your business is reaching commercial peaks.
