Jana van der Merwe

Candidate Attorney -Awaiting Admission


Phone +27 (0) 21 886 6992


Despite being born and raised just outside of Stellenbosch, Jana believes she will never get used to the beauty the Cape has to offer. She matriculated from Stellenbosch High in 2017 and obtained her LLB degree from the University of Stellenbosch in 2021. She commenced her practical vocational training in 2022 and joined the Rufus Dercksen Inc. team in January 2024. Jana will be admitted as an Attorney, Notary and Conveyancer of the High Court of South Africa in 2024 and assists with conveyancing and commercial matters in the firm.

When she is not at the office, you can find Jana soothing her soul with a good book, good company, good food or good music. Despite her enjoyment of peace and quiet, she has always believed that life begins at the end of your comfort zone and as such, she will always answer when adventure comes knocking at the door.
