Johan is the Head of Department for Property Disputes and Contractual and Delictual Litigation. He currently deals predominantly with contractual recoveries and disputes, residential and commercial property collections and evictions, and delictual litigation. In addition, Johan has over 10 years of experience in short-term insurance litigation.

Admitted as attorney in 2007, Johan joined Van Breda and Herbst Attorneys where he gained extensive experience in the short-term insurance industry – attending to recovery and liability-type litigation matters (motor vehicle accidents) on behalf of OUTsurance. His responsibilities eventually expanded to managing a team of close to 20 litigation attorneys, attending to matters on behalf of OUTsurance.

Currently Johan is establishing a young and dynamic Property Disputes team at Barnard Inc, publishing regularly on different topics in the property industry. The team is focused on finding innovative ways in expediting the eviction process, understanding that evictions can be a frustrating and stressful process for landlords in a difficult economic climate, however also understanding that the courts are more and more looking to apply the principle of Ubuntu when considering protection for tenants. The team’s membership at organisations such as SAPOA and Women’s Property Network puts them in an advantageous position to help contribute to the success and development of the property industry in South Africa.

Using our extensive knowledge and experience, we aim to add value and practical solutions.
