Adv. Ernest Bhero
In addition to being an Advocate, I am also a Professional Engineer registered with
ECSA (Engineering Council of South Africa). In engineering, I have a strong bias
towards design and practical oriented engineering works. As a result, I have a deep
interest in IP (intellectual property) law, and in particular, the patent law. I have
experience and interest in tax law (PR# - 0107921) emanating from my membership of the KZN Tax
Court (appointed in terms of section 116 of the Tax Administration Act 28 of 2011),
and I have had several opportunities to participate and adjudicate on tax court cases.
I am a Member of South African Labour Lawyers’ Society (SASLAW) and have
experience and interest in labour law. I am also a KZN LPC Committee member
(the Disciplinary, Investigating, and Mediation proceedings committee). A full list of my
areas of interest is given hereunder. In my quest to becoming a better professional,
one of my several guiding principles is that integrity must be at the centre of all that we do,
and that we must always keep a keen and an open mind.
