Norton Rose Fulbright announces six senior promotions

Global Press release August 2020

In the current global pandemic and unyielding economic downturn, Norton Rose Fulbright South Africa is especially delighted to announce the promotion of six of our Associates to Senior Associate.

“This follows the promotion of Kiasha Nagiah from Associate to Senior Associate earlier this year. Over the past four months, we have been blown away by the sheer determination and resilience of our entire staff, and we’re so happy to announce these promotions that reflect our confidence in the country, the future and our young talented lawyers,” says Marelise van der Westhuizen, CEO.

The following six Associates have been promoted to Senior Associate level, effective August 1:

  • Ildiko Gyarmati
  • Andrew Keightley-Smith
  • Natasha Naidoo
  • Sanelisiwe Ngcobo
  • Busisiwe Nhlapo
  • Megan Osborn

Norton Rose Fulbright was one of the first large corporates to take steps to circumvent potential economic issues when the initial lockdown was announced and our foresight has paid dividends. “These measures have enabled us to follow our usual promotion processes and to continue to build the expertise available to clients in difficult and for better times. The fact that these Associates are engaged across the firm in commercial transactions, litigation and property law speaks for itself.

“Congratulations to our brand new Senior Associates, we are so proud of all of you and wish you many more happy and fulfilling years with the firm.” concludes van der Westhuizen.

Globally, Norton Rose Fulbright has more than 3700 lawyers and other legal staff working across Europe, the United States, Canada, Latin America, Asia, Australia, the Middle East and  Africa. Locally, the firm has three offices in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town.
