Well hello…its good to e-meet you!
(Founder and CEO)
Of Counsel has long been in the making and is the culmination of all my skills and experiences gained over the last 18 years. This platform focuses on all things law and it brings together my expertise as a senior attorney, teacher, writer and speaker as well as my interests in legal innovation, the future of legal practice and entrepreneurship.
I have over 13 years’ practical legal experience having worked as an attorney for leading international corporate law firms in New York, Johannesburg and Cape Town and for South African investment banks. I lectured law at the University of Witwatersrand and I run workshops for different organizations on the technical aspects of property law and finance law.
Professional qualifications and honours
I am an admitted attorney of the High Court of South Africa and hold an LLM (Corporate Law) from the University of the Witwatersrand and a BA LLB from Rhodes University amongst other qualifications.
I was selected as one of the Mail & Guardian’s 200 Young South Africans (2017) and nominated for a Young Achiever of the year award by the Women in Property Network (Western Cape) (2017).
Let’s get personal
I’m an avid reader and traveller who is currently based in Cape Town.
I wear many hats including being a mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend, colleague, mentor and mentee.
A perfect day for me would be a warm summer’s day spent in the winelands having a long lazy lunch with great food and wine surrounded by friends and family.
I believe in the mantra that you should “Pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes of you” (From Maya Angelou – I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings)
