Lili can be found chatting to the Head of Legal for the DMRE one moment, and sitting in union meetings to secure a workable solution for her clients the next. It’s by sincerely considering everyone at the table (and those away from it) equally important that Lili’s earned her place amongst the most beloved legal advisors in the industry.
With extensive experience in the environmental and mining legal regulatory arena, Lili was previously at Bowmans, and has served as a director at Malan Scholes Attorneys. She has a deep understanding of the South African mining industry, and has worked on numerous transactions involving both international and local mining companies throughout South Africa and Africa.
Of the many traits that sets her apart, one of the most notable is Lili’s commitment to maintaining her close relationships with government, the private sector, and unions (all stakeholders in fact) – which points to the importance she places on an ability to play well with others. It’s partly why clients value working with her – and with NSDV in general (in addition to her practical approach to legal matters) – and it’s something she believes is critically lacking in the mining sector at large.
