Previously at Werksmans, PPHE Hotel Group and TUI UK
After starting her career in the competition department at Werksmans, Louella worked for internationally listed and FTSE 100 companies in the United Kingdom and developed a series of specialist skills in commercial law and compliance, more particularly data protection, anti-bribery and competition compliance.
Since returning to South Africa in 2017, Louella has assisted a number of multi-nationals, start-ups and NGO’s in their compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the South African Protection of Personal Information Act (POPI), global anti-bribery and corruption laws and the South African Competition Act. She further works with organisations to leverage technology within their businesses both from a contract life cycle and compliance management perspective.
With over a decade of experience, Louella’s legal project management experience enables her to deliver lean and effective programmes within budget and tight deadlines. Louella prides herself in getting to know the ins and outs of her clients’ businesses. Adopting a hands-on approach in the implementation of the compliance programmes she introduces, together with the use of clients’ existing technology, she is a pragmatic lawyer that won’t leave you with mounds of policies and procedures to figure out for yourself.
