After graduating with a BA LLB from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg in 1990, Imraan commenced employment with the Legal Resources Centre (LRC) as a Fellow and later as a Candidate Attorney from 1991 to 1994.

Imraan trained under Ellem Francis – currently a judge of the High Court and has had the good fortune of working with Adv. George Bizos SC (a leading human rights lawyer), Mohamed Navsa (presently a judge of the Supreme Court of Appeal) and Arthur Chaskalson (South Africa’s first Chief Justice after the 1994 elections).

In addition to practising as an attorney, he has worked as a special advisor to a councillor of the Independent Broadcasting Authority (now known as ICASA) and as a regional director of labour relations of the Independent Mediation Service of South Africa.

As an admitted attorney since 1994 Imraan practiced for his own account for more than ten years.  He joined Routledge Modise Attorneys (now known as Eversheds) as a partner in May 2008 until July 2009.

Imraan is a panellist on the Labour and Commercial Dispute Resolution Panels of Tokiso.  In addition to being a CEDR (Centre for Dispute Resolution in the UK) accredited commercial mediator, he is an experienced labour mediator, arbitrator, trainer and facilitator.
