North-West University (NWU) alumnus Thato Mashishi recently joined the corporate group of Walker Morris LLP (Walker Morris), the largest single-site law firm outside of London in the United Kingdom.
This corporate group is highly rated according to the rankings of Chambers and Partners and The Legal 500 – two leading global research companies.
Thato’s areas of focus at Walker Morris are general corporate law, mergers and acquisitions, private equity and venture capital.
He says the move was largely influenced by the similarities in the legal systems of the United Kingdom and South Africa and the prospect of international exposure.
“Walker Morris regularly advises local and international clients across various industries and sectors,” says Thato. He holds an LLB from the NWU, an LLM in corporate law from the University of Pretoria, and a postgraduate diploma in taxation from the University of the Witwatersrand.
He has previously worked at leading local and international firms, which include Fasken Martineau (now Fasken), KPMG and Adams & Adams.
