Experienced South African commercial law solicitor Johan Engelbrecht has joined the team at local law firm Garland Waddington - our wonderful Silver Sponsors.
Johan has almost 30 years’ experience, specialising in commercial and business law including retail and commercial leasing and sales, purchases of businesses and residential conveyancing.
Partner Ken Waddington said it was a pleasure to welcome someone with Johan’s extensive international experience.
“Johan’s experience in commercial and property law will be an important asset to the firm, complementing our expertise in property law, litigation and dispute resolution and business and construction law,” said Mr Waddington.
Johan was first admitted as a lawyer in the High Court of South Africa in 1991, and went on to open his own practice (which is still being run by his son and daughter) and was admitted as a lawyer in Australia in 2011.
In 2017, Johan and his wife Sharon moved to Australia where he was appointed the Head of the Property Law and Conveyancing Department at a Canberra law firm.
He quickly became a well-respected solicitor in Canberra (where he was a nominee for the Canberra R.E.I. Property Lawyer of the year).
In July 2018, Johan and Sharon moved to the Sunshine Coast for the warmer climate, initially to join a Buderim law firm.
For more than 40 years, Garland Waddington has been delivering practical legal solutions to clients on the Sunshine Coast and across Queensland.
