The corporation was set up by the Member with the purpose of meeting his need for a legal entity to enable him to practice his profession.

MLS is a member of the Panel of approved Liquidators of the Master of the High Court, Pretoria, Johannesburg, Cape Town and Mmabatho, but can deal with any matter anywhere in Southern Africa. I have been directly involved in many different liquidations over the years in South Africa, Botswana and Swaziland.

MLS commenced his career in January 1979 working for FIRST NATIONAL BANK attending to administration of deceased estates. He was responsible for the full administration of the estates from reporting of the estate to finalisation thereof. In February 1985 he left the banks employ to further his career. Between March 1985 and the end of February 1990 MLS performed the same duties for the then BANKORP TRUST. At the time of leaving their employ he was employed as a Senior Administrator.

An opportunity opened for him to join KPMG CHARTERED ACCOUNTANTS in March 1990 and he began working for the firm as an administrator of insolvent estates, pension funds and deceased estates. His duties involved the complete administration of insolvent estates, liquidated Closed Corporations and Companies.  MLS remained with KPMG for eight (8) years and obtained vast experience in many facets of insolvent estate administration including cross border insolvencies in Botswana. During 1998 MLS advanced his career by applying to be placed on the Master of the High Courts approved Panel of Liquidators/ Trustees.

MLS joined COOPER TRUST as a Senior Estate Administrator / Liquidator and worked for the company doing the administration of all the complicated liquidation matters handled by that firm. He attended to the administration of many estates for four (4) years while taking appointments on a regular basis. The administration included many of the largest Liquidations in South African corporate history. It also included cross border liquidations in Swaziland. 

In 1998 MLS completed the AIPSA examination and was awarded the “Diploma in Insolvency Law and Practice” and became a practising member of AIPSA. During November 2002 MLS left Cooper Trust and joined SBT TRUST to once again advance his career. His duties at SBT were the same as at Cooper Trust. MLS is no longer associated with that company. He was approached by other prominent liquidators to assist with the attending to the administration of all of their matters. The estates were to be administered under the umbrella of Stewart Trust Services. MLS is currently responsible for assisting with the administration of in excess of 680 insolvency matters and over 100 curatorship matters. He has also personally been appointed in various matters over the years and finalised many of them.

ACCREDITATION MOTIVATION

I believe that with many of the older Liquidators leaving or having left the industry that this is the time to step forward and establish myself and the corporation as a liquidations company that will act with professionalism, integrity and honesty offering creditors a place for them to be treated with respect as they strive to recover a maximum dividend to minimise their losses. Michael have vast experience obtained over many years and can ensure that matters are dealt with properly.

I pride myself in the fact that I can now offer creditors the kind of professionalism and accountability that comes with the responsibility of the office of a Liquidator or Trustee. From the time of my appointment in a matter, I have learned to strive to ensure a maximum and swift realisation of assets and the speedy winding up of estates.

I trust i will be able to be of service to you.
