WESLEY was inspired by his great uncle, the late Robert Rogers QC, (Barrister at Law, England), to practice Law and graduated in 2012 from the University of KwaZulu-Natal with a Bachelor of Laws degree, having excelled in criminal law, criminal procedure and international criminal law, as well as having a keen interest in these areas of law, he decided to specialise in these fields of practice.

Prior to graduation he spent approximately 2 months volunteering with Legal Aid South Africa as well as NICRO. Having seen the disastrous effects a lack of legal representation had on the poor and vulnerable of society, he took up articles at this Legal Aid South Africa, where he excelled and was awarded an annual achiever award.

Upon completion of articles, and on his admission as an Attorney of the High Court, he was employed as an Associate at one of KZN’s top Criminal Law practices, where his field of expertise was greatly advanced.

He further excelled in this practice having obtained an almost perfect success rate in matters which ran to trial, or were withdrawn on his submission of comprehensive representations to the State. Having spent four years at this practice, he established this practice in 2018.

His expertise were further enhanced on his completion of a correspondence course in International Criminal Law via Case Western Reserve University, USA.

He has subsequently furthered his legal education by completing a UN certification in International Law, certification in Management from the International Business Management Institute in Berlin as well as an advanced certification in Medico-Legal Forensics and Medical Law.

Having been admitted as an Associate Member of the International Criminal Court Bar Association at The Hague, he ranks amongst the few in South Africa to have experience and access to the Apex International Criminal Court at The Hague and its various Tribunals.

Wesley maintains a professional and cordial relationship with his colleagues within the Prosecution and with the Judiciary and has been accepted by the Bar Standards Board of the UK, to proceed with the process of being admitted in England and Wales as a Barrister at Law.

In 2022, Andrea Coopasamy joined the firm.
