A veteran of big-money divorce for over 35 years in South Africa and London, Charmaine Hast is highly regarded among peers. A QC calls her ‘an outstanding practitioner, hard as nails when it counts, soft as a feather when needed’, while another says she is ‘astute and fiercely intelligent’. A chartered arbitrator, who joined Wedlake Bell in 2011, she was a partner at a leading law firm in Durban for 14 years before moving to England, where she headed a leading family law unit in the South East. Hast has just concluded a $2.5 billion matter which substantiates her belief that ‘nothing beats a personal service by a solicitor who is highly motivated at times of severe anguish and stress for the client’.
