Practising Advocate of the High Court of South Africa

Experience

Practising Advocate, Member of the Cape Bar (2014-Present)

Since 2014, to present, I have been a practicing Advocate of the High Court and member of the Cape Bar. Select briefs of relevance to this application include:

  • 2021: A delictual claim against a now-closed rehabilitation facility in the Western Cape relating to medical abuse and the suspected defrauding of former in-patients. 
  • 2020-2021: Parallel contractual and delictual claims totalling R20 billion against Steinhoff and various of the Wiese entities arising from the 2017 Steinhoff fraud revelations. 
  • 2019: Matrimonial and parental rights dispute involving abuse of a thirteen year-old child and the subsequent abuse of court resulting in the child being involuntarily detained at an unlicensed adult rehabilitation facility in Mpumalanga.
  • 2018: Medicolegal delictual action relating to a hypoxic-ischaemic injury during childbirth. 
  • 2016-2020: For approximately 2000 hours of this period, I worked on a malicious prosecution action on behalf of a high-ranking Major General against the Minister of Police. The dramatis personae were high-ranking SAPS officers, various former Umkhonto weSizwe intelligence operatives, apartheid security police, crime intelligence, cabinet politicians, and infamous players in local and international organised crime.
  • 2014-2016: I primarily worked on commercial and residential property law matters. I drafted over a hundred opinions, letters, contracts, and drafted court papers; I also argued a number of applications (including liquidations and matrimonial matters).
  • Pro-bono: As an advocate I have been involved in and conducted two pro-bono matters of relevance: an effort to free an abused child from an unlicensed adult rehabilitation centre, and a civil claim on behalf of a victim of rape by an on-duty police officer.
