We bid farewell to Tony Hardy, a consultant at Fairbridges Wertheim Becker, in the Cape Town Office, who is to retire after 56 years at our firm.
“Tony served with distinction as President of the Cape Law Society and as President of the Association of Law Societies of South Africa (effectively the leader of the attorneys’ profession). He also showed his academic ability by obtaining his Masters degree at UCT in Tax Law 30 years after commencing practice. As head of our Commercial department for many years, involved in countless complex transactions for both domestic and foreign clients, he has long been recognised as one of South Africa’s top corporate, tax and commercial lawyers. He was also our senior partner and chairman for well over a decade and an outstanding leader. He is ensured that he is enshrined in the annals of the firm’s history.” – Richard Cheeseman, Managing Director
