South African heartthrob, model, former Mr South Africa 2010 and lawyer, Denver Burns is taking over the law fraternity together with his new business partner, internationally acclaimed attorney, Max Boqwana. Denver, a Port Elizabeth-born lawyer, who competed in last year’s grueling IronMan South Africa 2012 triathlon event, has joined forces with fellow Port Elizabethan and respected lawyer Max Boqwana, who has 15 years’ worth of private practice experience to his name, as well as experience as an acting Judge, to launch BOQWANA BURNS. This new, BEE law firm specialises in all spheres of law, so they can cater to all their clients’ legal requirements, with class and professionalism. So who said that a man in a suit had to seem boring or uninteresting? Denver explains that BOQWANA BURNS’s unique and pioneering approach is set to take South Africa by storm by revolutionising the thought that attorneys should only be old, serious and boring. “The merger of Boqwana Ntlabezo Inc. and Burns Delport Inc., culminating in the firm, BOQWANA BURNS, introduces a company of young, dynamic and diverse attorneys, with experience which is almost unmatched, in all spheres of law,” said the Johannesburg-based lawyer. BOQWANA BURNS prides themselves on having some of South Africa’s most-respected attorneys within the firm, who regard themselves as “dynamic and pioneering in the way they practice law, as well as, in the way in which they engage with their clients”. “We strongly believe in building a strong personal relationship with our clients, in order to establish a life long relationship – built on trust and loyalty,” explains Denver. The firm boasts offices, in Johannesburg, Port Elizabeth, as well as, Mthatha, in the Eastern Cape, which enables BOQWANA BURNS to service clients throughout the country.

In sepia Moynat Initial Canvas, the Virage iPhone 5 Case has been elegantly and entirely hand made by accomplished artisans in the heritage and savoir-faire of Moynat Paris. With only one store in the world, located on the prestigious Rue Saint Honoré in Paris, Moynat is one of the oldest Parisian Malletiers (trunk-makers), established in 1849. The definition of luxury lies in the attention to detail and a personalized hand-written ‘welcome & thank you’ note from the president of Moynat included in the presentation of their pieces once purchased is priceless.
