I practised as an advocate in South Africa for thirty years before moving to Scotland in 2017, and I now reside on the Isle of Arran. I became a senior counsel in 2010 and gained considerable experience in general litigation, including banking law, damages’ claims, defamation, motor vehicle accident claims, family law (in particular divorce law), insolvencies and liquidations, land evictions, medical negligence claims, property law, home owners associations, law of purchase and sale and municipal law. I obtained my BJuris LLB degree at the then University of Port Elizabeth. I am a past chairman of the Eastern Cape Society of Advocates and I served on the Eastern Cape Bar Council for several terms. I am completing my LLM in Mediation and Conflict Resolution at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, and I am a mediator with the University of Strathclyde Mediation Clinic.
I believe that mediation is a very effective process for dispute resolution. It is a relatively inexpensive and efficient process which enables parties to find their own resolution to the dispute, with the assistance of the mediator. Parties are able to make use of legal advisers in the mediation, but can also take part in the mediation without representation. Where parties are located far from each other, it is possible to conduct a mediation telephonically.
