He has  helped several clients in an advisory capacity. He believes that the true creed of good lawyering is the ability to take clients to legal solutions as quickly and cheaply as possible. To him, therefore, law should not be viewed as a narrow and isolated branch, the manifest and application of which is triggered only when matters of dispute and compliance arise. He believes, rather, that legal counsel should form part of the day to day decision making process and its impact on the clients’ business and development should be proactively and objectively assessed and analysed. Thus, a sound advice to clients is a step towards achieving clients’ desired goals.
