EXPERIENCE

Trainee Solicitor/Candidate Attorney

During my time as a candidate attorney my experience ranged from general commercial and employment litigation and labour related contracts and disputes to general commercial work such as the drafting of sale agreements, memorandums of incorporation, shareholder's agreements and the like. Prior to the drafting of these contracts I was involved in multiple due diligence investigations with my involvement ranging from initial client meetings, reviewing of agreements and drafting of the final report.


My clerkship was divided into two seats. My first 12 months was set in the employment and commercial dispute resolution team and my last 12 months was seated in the commercial M&A team. Werksmans prides itself on getting even the most junior staff members involved in transactions and issues of varying complexity. I was exposed to a broad range of matters

and was involved in almost every step of a dispute/transaction.
