Director – LLB LLM (UFS)
SG joined Dommisse Attorneys in 2014 and now co-heads our Corporate and Commercial Team. His core focus is on the legal aspects of corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions and corporate restructuring. He has a very keen interest in private equity and venture capital funding and thrives on playing a leading role in challenging transactional work. In the last 10 years, SG has led various well-publicised M&A transactions and funding transactions, advising either investment funds or investees with a strong focus on cross-border investment into fast-growing African companies.
His passion and forte is to create value for clients with his relentless devotion to finding innovative corporate solutions, by applying relevant legal knowledge to complex situations.
SG obtained an LLB and LLM (cum laude) from the University of the Free State and was admitted as an attorney in Bloemfontein in 2010, after which he commenced with his career as a commercial attorney in Pretoria.
He lives by the simple mantra that you need to make sure you remain useful and relevant to earn a living, which drives his efforts to stay in touch with technological developments in the legal and business world at large, by regularly speaking at events such as Legal and Innovation Tech Fest and AI Expo Africa, on radio programmes or doing mentoring and training programmes with promising entrepreneurs. Always aiming to remain connected with a strong entrepreneurial drive, he loves being involved with new and exciting initiatives.
When he’s not at the office SG is likely to be enjoying music, art, literature, a glass of good red wine or an adventure far away from it all on mountains covered with snow.
