ICO and International Trade Lawyer

I am a corporate advisory and commercial litigation attorney currently on the non practicing roll based in Sandton, South Africa.

I articled at Eversheds SA (now Hogan Lovells SA), the South African office of a top-tier UK based law firm, between 2008 and 2010, where I was part of their insolvency litigation team, headed by one of the leading insolvency practitioners in the country.

After leaving Eversheds, I immigrated to the Republic of Korea for a year, before opening my own practice in June 2011, wherein I gained 7 years post qualification experience in the following practice areas:-

• High Level Commercial Dispute Resolution;
• Cross border and local Acquisitions;
• International Trade Agreements;
• Corporate Estate Planning and Restructuring; and
• Corporate administration.

My practice has consistently engaged with the South African Big Five Law Firms, some of which are affiliates of major UK based firms, either working with or on the other side of the table.

I am currently enrolled at QLTS School to become an attorney admitted in the Law Society of England and Wales.

I also serve as the legal advisor on the advisory board of an Estonian based solar power investment company, Gotosolar
