IN MEMORY OF OUR DEAR FRIEND AND COLLEAGUE HUGO VAN TONDER
13/09/1974 – 24/7/2021

One rarely come across a person with such kindness and sense of humanity as our friend and colleague- Hugo, who managed to combine his passion for the law with his compassion for people with a sense of morality. In his soft-spoken manner he managed to bring across his arguments and convince people to do the right thing. In his practice Hugo was renowned for preparation, pristine drafting, knowledge of all aspects of law and well-rounded arguments. He was widely considered an expert in amongst other, the field of personal injury law. His door was always open, and he enjoyed sharing his knowledge and experience with everybody. Hugo was a caring son, loving husband and father to two young daughters, and was very involved in his children’s school’s governing body and involved in his church and community life in general. Few people knew that he rendered missionary services in remote parts of Africa. Hugo will leave a huge void in the community he served and in the legal fraternity and specially at the Pretoria Society of Advocates where he has been a member for more than twenty years and served on various committees. He was also a member of SAMLA and AFSA. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to have known Hugo and to have him as a colleague and friend and he will never be forgotten.
