Tanya Chicken | Director – KM Developer – BAcc LLB (Stell)

Tanya LokTanya joined Dommisse Attorneys as a senior associate in 2014. Her invaluable commercial experience has led to the creation of her new role as head of knowledge management.

Her core strengths, skills and values are perfectly aligned with our ever increasing efficiency goals and value-based propositions. Her vast experience in drafting various agreements for supply and distribution, leases, shareholders, sale of business, sale of property and rental enterprise, sale of shares and subscriptions; setting up cross-border group structures; advising on the Companies Act, 2008; and attending to various aspects of company secretarial work, including drafting memoranda of incorporation, drafting all forms of resolutions and attending to corporate governance compliance, makes her best placed to develop and manage our knowledge systems, as well as training our junior attorneys.

Her strong analytical skills, combined with an ability to think  critically and work well within a team, helps her build strong relationships with both team members and clients, whilst working in a fast paced, high pressure, and ever-changing corporate and entrepreneurial environment.

Tanya’s combined BAcc LLB degree at the University of Stellenbosch not only laid the foundations for a hugely beneficial accounting background, but also helped to establish a comprehensive overview of commercial law in general. She commenced her legal career at ENS Africa, during which time she specialized in corporate commercial law, with a focus on mergers and acquisitions, commercial property transactions, corporate restructures and general corporate commercial work.

Tanya is also passionate about an outdoor-based lifestyle and animals, and when she’s not spending time at home with her zoo, you’ll find her exploring the outdoors with her dogs in tow.
