The latest Legal Scoop for June includes news from Eversheds Sutherland, KISCH IP, Norton Rose Fulbright, Adams & Adams and Bowmans. Have any news to share? Please send it to us!

This month Eversheds Sutherland has seen 2 promotions with Matthew Anley, a candidate attorney, being made an associate at their commercial department, and Kirsten-Lee Dinnes being appointed as senior associate in their IP team.

The Knysna Fires have caused great devastation to this beautiful part of our country and much support is still needed to help all those affected. It is at times like these that we see the phenomenal support of our fellow South Africans from across the globe, and to assist, ADDaBIT has teamed up with KISCH IP to set up a fund to accept donations. KISCH IP will ensure the funds are disbursed appropriately, and will administer the specific payments to ensure those in need are helped. ADDaBIT funds are managed by Sanlam.

As we head to the end of June, some more news in the legal sector this month:
Norton Rose Fulbright South Africa appointed a new Deputy CEO, Mark Gilbert. Adams & Adams announced their new Associate office in Ethiopia bringing the number of Associate offices in their Adams & Adams Africa Network (AAAN) to 19. Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyer announced that Christoff Pienaar has been appointed as the National Practice Head for the firm’s Technology and Sourcing practice. And lastly, Bowmans signed a “Best Friends Agreement” with Maputo-based law firm TPLA.
