Elna is an associate in the Litigation & Dispute Resolution Department where she advises clients on a broad spectrum of legal issues in Family Law, Insurance Law, Land Law, Banking and Finance Law, Public Procurement Law, Debt Recovery, Commercial Litigation, Mediation and Arbitration. Additionally, she is proficient in several practices including Administrative Law, Employment and Labour Relations Law, Public Interest Litigation and Media Law.
 
When you meet Elna, it is hard to forget her as she is inquisitive, easily approachable and always willing to lend a helping hand. Elna’s very distinct laugh is hard to miss and she lights up any room she walks into because of her bubbly personality. She has boundless positive energy that her colleagues and clients alike draw from and endears her to them. These are qualities that serve her well as a member of the team undertaking corporate governance, legal and compliance audit at the firm.
 
Through her interaction with the law, Elna has broadened her perspective on how the world works and her passions lie in Administrative Law and representing administrative bodies in matters of violation of the rules and regulations put in place, as well as in matters relating to their obligations and responsibilities to the public. She also holds a degree in Bachelor of Arts majoring in Political Science and Psychology and this is an added advantage in understanding how the administrative bodies discharge their mandate and the necessity for regulations these entities come up with.
 
Elna, the bona fide ‘life of the party’, is always to be found organizing fun events for her colleagues in the office, baking and hiking.
