Paul Bondi, Co-Head South Africa, Rothschild and Co

On behalf of Rothschild and Co, we would like to express our heartfelt condolences on the untimely passing of Rob Legh.

We have had the privilege of working with, and in some cases opposite, Rob on a number of precedent setting transactions over many years. We also worked alongside him in the role he played on behalf of organised business through Business Unity South Africa (BUSA) and more recently in the critical role Rob played within Business for SA (B4SA) in tirelessly working with social partners to limit the devastating impact of the pandemic on employers and employees through the Temporary Employment Relief Scheme (TERS).

Throughout these many different roles, Rob’s unwavering commitment to his clients, colleagues and his fellow South Africans was a constant theme. Over and above his sage and steadfast advice, his dedication to making a positive contribution both to the business community and society more broadly was universally evident. He was a true patriot and an outstanding individual. His generosity of spirit, dedication and friendship will be dearly missed.

We wish the team at Bowmans and Rob’s family much strength at this very difficult time.
