Partner at Ashersons Attorneys
In 2013 I was invited to join Ashersons Attorneys as one of the four Partners of the legal practice. I had previously completed my articles of clerkship at Ashersons, and then elected to stay on as an Associate for three years, whereafter I took up my current position as a Partner of the firm.
I was admitted as an Attorney of the Western Cape Division of the High Court of South Africa in July 2009, and obtained my rights of appearance in the Supreme Courts shortly thereafter.
Ashersons Attorneys is a boutique legal practice catering for an exclusive range of both corporate and high nett worth individual clients throughout South Africa, Africa, Europe, America and Australia. Please visit our website for more information as to our services >> www.ashersons.co.za
