Justin chose to pursue legal studies after beginning his career in the field of town planning. Clearly, he made the right choice: not only did he obtain his degree, but he received three University Prizes in the process (in the areas of Succession, Business Organisations and Legal Practice).

Commencing with the firm in 1989 Justin has developed considerable experience in property, electricity supply & distribution, commercial and local government law, with planning and environmental law a significant part of his skill set. Justin became a partner in 1991 and has since obtained a Masters of Laws Degree.
