ANDREW DUFF
SENIOR PARTNER

Andrew established Andrew Duff Attorneys in September 2010 but, has been practising for his own account in excess of 10 years. Andrew completed a B.Com (Law) degree from the Rand Afrikaans University (RAU) in 2004, whereafter he completed his LLB degree at the University of Johannesburg in 2006.

He started his professional career as a Candidate Attorney at Blake Bester Incorporated.

Andrew was excited to have Liza Pretorius join him as partner in 2019, which facilitated the name change to Duff Pretorius Attorneys and Notaries, which he believes will continue to see the firm grow from strength to strength, while at all times remaining true to the original vision of ADA, which has been accentuated by the calibre of professional staff who have joined the firm in the recent years.
