Nicholas Elliot - Litigation and general practice
He obtained his LLB in 2007 and completed his articles in a prestigious Johannesburg based law firm, Schindlers Attorneys, where he obtained a huge amount of experience in MVA, personal injury and RAF matters. He was involved in many litigious matters in both the High and Magistrates Courts. Further in his training with Schindlers Attorneys he gained experience in competition litigation and landlord and tenant disputes.
After his articles had expired Nicholas wanted to gain further experience in other aspects of the law and joined Cyril Ziman and Associates where he gained further experience in general law, litigation and liquidations. Nicholas again felt that he needed to gain more experience and joined TLi Incorporated.
Soon after joining TLi Inc that Nicholas was satisfied that he has the necessary competence, experience and training to start on his own, ran the litigation and general practice department of Louis De Villiers Attorneys and now as a director of Thomson Wilks Inc.
