Summary Profile

Candice is recognised as South Africa’s leading plain language lawyer. She is a director at Simplified, a training and consultancy firm in Johannesburg. The main focus of her work is simplifying legal and financial information and training people how to do it. Her recent work includes helping organisations to implement the Treating Customers Fairly principles set out by the Financial Services Board. Among her clients are Alexander Forbes, Allan Gray, Law Reform Commission, Discovery, Edward Nathan Sonnenbergs and KPMG.

Candice is the President of Clarity, a worldwide association promoting plain legal language. Candice is the first African to be bestowed with this honour.

In 2009, Candice, together with Frances Gordon of Simplified, contributed chapters to Advocate Neville Melville’s The Consumer Protection Act made easy and to Canadian lawyer Cheryl Stephen’s Plain Language in Plain English.

This year, Candice co-founded the Plain Language Group of South Africa with other plain
language practitioners. Its aim is to lobby for effective plain language guidelines in South Africa.

Candice is frequently invited to speak at local and international conferences and seminars on plain legal language and, in particular, South Africa’s plain language laws and how organisations can comply with them. Her talks are tailored for the audience and include examples they can relate to.

Candice read for the BA LLB degrees at Wits and was admitted as an attorney of the High
Court of South Africa in 1997.
