Board of directors
Sean v.d. Merwe

Sean articled at Weavind and after his admission as an attorney in 1999, was a professional assistant in the Litigation Department. He decided to look to for greener pastures and practised in Johannesburg for a time before the lure of Pretoria persuaded him to cross the Jukskei again. Despite growing up in Durban, Sean is an avid Blue Bulls supporter, enjoys history and is a serious comic collector with a huge collection of comics dating as far back as the 1960’s.
