JKLS AFRICA FOUNDER, KOOS KOTZE
THREE DECADES OF LEGAL AND SECURITY EXPERIENCE
Koos Kotze has made a commendable contribution to the well-being, sustainability, and security of multiple businesses in sub-Saharan Africa ranging from start-ups to listed companies. He is an expert in dismantling crisis situations and determining a sound response to threats before they occur or become serious.
Starting his career in the South African Police Force (1985-1991) and then studying law at the University of the Free State, Bloemfontein, South Africa, Koos graduated in 1997 with the law degrees B Iuris & LLB. He is highly experienced on all sides of the legal spectrum, police, state prosecutor, human rights attorney, defense counsel, and corporate legal advisor. His experience includes all types of commercial legal work and compliance with full litigation oversight. His approach is unconventional conventional... that is a solid belief in compliance and establishing protocols but also outside of the box thinking to get cost-effective solutions. Koos wrote dozens of books on law, business, counter-terrorism, and security both under his own and a pseudo name. There is little that he does not know regarding security and legal issues in sub-Saharan Africa. As such he conducts briefings on hostage prevention and survival to corporate clients as well as general security briefings.
