Nicolene hails from Citrusdal at the foot of the Cederberg mountains in the Western Cape where she matriculated from Citrusdal High School in 2004. She obtained her LLB degree from Stellenbosch University.
Nicolene started her legal career as a candidate attorney at Rufus Dercksen Inc. (previously known as Rufus Dercksen Attorneys) in 2009 and was admitted as an attorney of the High Court of South Africa in 2012. She primarily attended to litigious matters on behalf of Absa Bank and dealt with various other debt collections. She also drafted contracts for private and corporate clients.
In 2016, Nicolene was admitted as a conveyancer and started to focus on property transactions and conveyancing in general. She now heads the Conveyancing Department at the firm and attends to all conveyancing matters for private and corporate clients.
In addition to property transactions, Nicolene has extensive knowledge and experience in negotiation and the drafting of commercial contracts, purchase and supply agreements, ante nuptial contracts, and wills and trusts. Furthermore, she attends to the administration of estates and trusts, and various company law matters.
Nicolene’s approach to the law is client-oriented and she takes care of the clients’ unique needs. She accepts commercial instructions for private and corporate clients. Using her acquired skills and a solution-driven mindset, Nicolene is determined to find commercially acceptable answers for her clients. She therefore endeavours to develop sound relationships with all her clients while focusing on providing a service that is efficient, swift, and of a high quality.
As much as Nicolene finds joy in her work, she also takes pleasure in spending her free time with family and friends, often with a braai, dinner parties or a scrumptious lunch on a wine farm, in the wild, or at the beach. Apart from embarking on outdoor and travelling adventures with her husband, Nicolene is also a self-acclaimed ‘foodie’ who is passionate about making food.
