Biography
I am a proudly African lawyer, qualified in South Africa and now practicing international arbitration in the Netherlands. I have strong interest in the development of the African continent through law and otherwise. I believe in the coordinated effort and sense of community that AfAA promotes. In particular, I believe in the value of knowledge-sharing and access to information about arbitration and ADR in Africa, and the proactive development of African practitioners and institutions.
