Shereen was admitted as an Attorney in 1993. For the last 20 years, she has practised exclusively in the field of family law and related private client matters. Her expertise includes: divorce law, financial dissolution disputes, parenting disputes, relocation applications, surrogate parenting agreements, claims in respect of children and Hague applications.
She is an experienced litigator and a mediator and facilitator. She is, as a result, particularly skilled in mediation support and strategic advice. Shereen often deals with complex proprietary disputes and advises on the formation and dissolution of relationships. She has also dealt with many international family law matters over the years.
Through her position on the Cape Law Society’s Specialist Family and Gender Committee, Shereen was involved in the development of Family Law in South Africa over the past 17 years. Since the Legal Practise Council replaced the Law Societies, Shereen continues these efforts through the Western Cape Family Law Forum.
Shereen is a member of STBB’s executive committee.
