Director, Knowledge Management
Retha Beerman is a Director, heading up our Knowledge Management (KM) department. The guiding purpose of this department is to enable the whole Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr society to deliver continuous improvements in the quality of professional services provided to their clients, at competitive prices, as well as to develop ways in which the firm may offer "more-for-less" to its clients. The KM department does so by steering the life-cycle of information into and through the firm: we guide the sourcing, capturing, curating, distribution, teaching and effective use of knowledge in the firm. This includes astute use of technological advances in the field of law, proven to improve quality, efficiency, and the overall client experience.
Prior to taking on a Knowledge Management role, Retha practiced as an Employment Director, having also dabbled in academic life at times during her career.
Retha was a Director at Fluxman Rabinowitz Raphaely Weiner before joining Hofmeyr Herbstein and Gihwala (now Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr) as a Director in 2002. Except for a three year period of absence (2005 to 2008)when she practiced for her own account, Retha remained in our Employment practice until she moved to the Knowledge Management department in 2011.
