Webber Wentzel appoints five new partners and two consultants

Webber Wentzel has appointed five new partners and two consultants, enhancing its leading, full-service offering to its clients:

  • Maria Philippides, Sandra Sithole, Caroline Theodosiou and Raynold Tlhavani (all from Norton Rose Fulbright) join as partners, bringing deep expertise in insurance litigation in particular;
  • Seraj Haroun (from Allen & Overy) joins as a partner, and Michael Fleischer (formerly group chief counsel at MTN), re-joins the firm as a consultant - both will be valuable additions to the firm's corporate offering; and
  • Tim Ball joins Webber Wentzel as a consultant, bringing new specialist patent litigation expertise to the firm's already highly acclaimed IP offering.

"We are delighted to be growing our business and service offering in the interests of our clients. These senior appointments build on our already broad service offering, and also see some familiar faces returning to the firm - a true testament to the standing and culture of the firm" Christo Els, Senior Partner, Webber Wentzel.
