LLB (NWU) HDIP TAX (UJ)
Gerhard was admitted as an attorney of the High Court of South Africa in 2010. He completed his LLB degree at the University of North West in 2007.
In 2012, after he had been presented with the opportunity to jointly acquire the firm with Douw Breed, Gerhard joined Barnard Incorporated and currently fulfils the role of Financial Director.
As head of his department, a successful division in corporate law, including restructures, mergers & acquisitions, company legal assistance and corporate tax was established. Over time, the division expanded to include specialised services in all corporate and commercial law- and tax law, including tax compromises.
Crucially, Gerhard is devoted to the core principle shared by the management of the firm – to find practical solutions for clients catered for their commercial considerations. By following this principle, Gerhard considers himself to form part of various long-term relationships, rather than creating isolated interactions with clients.
