33  year old South African white female, living in Randburg, is a qualified and experienced Advocate of the High Courts of South Africa since 2012 with a BHSc (Wits) and LLB (UNISA) degree and has been in private practice as well as experience in the corporate sector as a Legal Advisor, Contracts Specialist and Service Level Management in the Telecommunications industry.

She has diverse expertise in litigation, contract development and negotiation and legal counsel in the field of business agreements. She was responsible for developing commercial contracts between her employer, their strategic partners and business customers. She engaged with the company's internal clients, the business partners and technology partners to understand their needs and perspectives and then crafted a unique and mutually beneficial business agreement which would withstand external scrutiny and, if necessary, litigation. She used this approach and due diligence processes to define business risks to the company and create contract risk mitigation mechanisms to protect the interests of the business. She also engaged on a daily basis with the PoPI, intellectual property and data protection regulations and legislation to ensure compliance in all contracts which were drafted and/or negotiated.

She is immediately available and looking for an exciting opportunity for a Legal Advisor, Contract Specialist and/or Company Secretary in the corporate sector in a medical, pharmaceutical, IT, Telco, Insurance and/or related company in the Randburg / Johannesburg area.

A hallmark of her success in both her previous employer and as a private practice advocate is to negotiate and create solutions and being able to influence decision makers effectively. Having been in her own successful private practice for 5 years as an Advocate, she learned how to work without supervision, met deadlines, and juggle multiple cases and pieces of diverse work simultaneously.

She is assertive, self-disciplined, target driven, can manage her own client base, prioritize work and has the ability to take initiative to achieve the right business and legal outcome. She is resilient and agile, responding to changing circumstances quickly. She works best under pressure, can take accountability to drive the results on the end-to-end process and can connect with colleagues, clients and stakeholders regularly.
