Metcalfe Beukes Attorneys Namibia Job Vacancies


Metcalfe Legal Practitioners was established in September 1995 by Richard Metcalfe. Before he established the law firm Metcalfe Legal Practitioners, Mr Metcalfe worked as Legal Manager for ABSA Bank, one of the largest banks in South Africa. He worked for ABSA Bank from March 1989 until December 1992. Thereafter he briefly joined the Directorate of Legal Aid, before he left to establish himself in private practice as an Advocate. He practiced in Windhoek as an Advocate until 31 August 1995. The decision to establish a law firm was prompted by the introduction of The Legal Practitioners Act 15 of 1995 which effectively abolished the distinction in Namibia between attorneys and advocates (which was inherited from South Africa) and made all such persons legal practitioners.
