It is with great sadness that the Banking Association South Africa (BASA) heard of the passing of Bowmans’ Chair and Senior Partner, Robert Legh.
His immense legal expertise and contribution to developing competition law in South Africa has been widely acknowledged.
His determined work on the Temporary Employment Relief Scheme (TERS), which alleviated the plight of millions during the Covid-19 pandemic and national state of disaster, is confirmation of the tributes that described him as committed South African and a caring human being.
On behalf of the association, its members and staff, I would like to extend my sincere condolences to his colleagues and family. We wish them strength in the days ahead.
