OUR PEOPLE


Corporate commercial law is a rather serious matter. While we are all rather serious in nature and are known for our capacity for hard work and our ability to work long hours, we believe that our profiles need to give our clients insight into who we are.

Each of our team members are proficient in English and Afrikaans.
CÉZANNE BRITAIN
CEO, Director
Cézanne heads up the Britain Renecke team.

Cézanne was the first black female partner to be appointed in (the then known as) DLA Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr's Cape Town Corporate & Commercial practice.

Admitted as Attorney of the High Court of South Africa and Conveyancer (2003)

LLB - University of the Western Cape

LLM International Trade and Business Law (cum laude) - University of the Western Cape

Ford Foundation International Fellow

Cézanne has over 12 years’ experience as a corporate commercial lawyer, focussing on advising on South African company law, South African contract law, doing business in South Africa, conducting legal due diligence investigations, advising on, negotiating and structuring commercial and business transactions and advising on corporate governance.

Fearless in her pursuit for success and excellence, and committed to transformation, Cézanne is known to not follow the pack.

Named after the French painter, Cézanne likes to think she is a bit creative too, and is quite the artist when drawing transaction diagrams. She is also known for thinking on her feet; literally, and can often be found walking around the office barefoot.
