Alan joined the firm’s property practice group in 2014, and became an equity director two years later. His intimate involvement in the management of the property practice group assists in strengthening the relationship between the firm and its clients and helping to position the property practice group of the firm as a leading property practice.

Directly after matric, Alan joined the then South African Police where he completed a National Diploma in Police Administration. As a police officer, he took night classes at the then Vista University to obtain his LL.B degree. Law enforcement’s loss was the legal fraternity’s gain when Alan completed his articles and initially practised as a litigant before crossing over into property law.

Alan’s strong work ethic, high standard and quality of service, coupled with his pleasant demeanour, makes him popular among clients and peers. He enjoys working closely with colleagues in various departments in order to provide exceptional solutions to his clients, making him a sought-after specialist in the property sector.

To Alan, a weekend is well spent with a good dose of rugby or cricket. Alan has a soft spot for the Karoo and, in his spare time, enjoys travelling and exploring remote parts of the country with his wife and son.
