Andrea, saw the benefits of a boutique styled law firm in which the appropriate use of technology could assist in curbing the costs of litigation and allowing for greater and more expedient interaction with clients.
Always keen to expend her horizons, Andrea joined the lecturing fraternity and for a number of years lectured part-time at the tertiary education institution, Varsity College (Westville campus).

Liezel drafted the necessary Agreements in respect to the schemes and followed the process through to the registration of the transfers in the Deeds registry.

Liezel, like Andrea, appreciates the value in educating prospective attorneys and too, has taken a part-time lecturing position with Varsity College Westville.
