Candice Pillay is a partner at Hogan Lovells. She coordinates the Hogan Lovells firm’s citizenship and pro bono activities. She ensures that all ongoing initiatives are running smoothly and also acts as a spokesperson in the media on issues affecting the poor and disenfranchised in our community.
She also manages the enterprise development and social entrepreneurship practice, which aims to empower people by teaching them to be economically active and then providing legal support to their businesses at a reduced rate.
By working through various funding organizations and not-for-profit organizations in Africa, Candice is able to provide legal support to start up social enterprises throughout Africa.
Another project is the collaboration with the Gauteng Department of Community safety shelters, where we assist residents with domestic violence protection orders, maintenance claims, and custody and access cases for children. We are also providing enterprise development programmes to assist women in the shelters to start their own businesses and be economically independent.
