Harry has BA, BA(Hons) and LLB degrees from the University of Cape Town.
He commenced practice at the Law Firm, CK Friedlander Kleinman & Shandling (as it then was) in Cape Town in January 1979 and practiced as an attorney, notary and conveyancer. He was appointed as a partner in 1984 and specialised in property law, conveyancing and deceased estates. In 2012 the firm (by then known as Friedlander Shandling Volks) merged with Smith Tabata Buchanan Boyes ("STBB") whereupon Harry was appointed as a director of that firm.
Harry retained an active interest in his anti-Apartheid work and was part of a team which defeated the Pass Laws and rendered the system inoperable prior to their repeal.
He also evolved a financial system for transferring residential properties in underprivileged areas, where neither buyer nor seller had funds to cover pre-transfer disbursements, and which system later gave rise to the industry now referred to as “bridging finance”.
In the course of his career as a sectional title conveyancer he registered in the region of 200 sectional title schemes, from small to large.
Harry works mostly from home in a practice which adds an extra dimension to the main work of Bagraims Attorneys. Harry is available on request.
He is also an associate to the law firm Truter Samuels Mentor ("TSM") in Monte Vista, for the convenience of his Northern Suburbs clients.

Your will is your final opportunity to ensure that your assets benefit the people and institutions that you intended to benefit. Centuries of law and shrewd experience of human nature have gone into making the law what it is today, and it changes constantly. The slightest change in the law can make a vast change to the fortunes of your family and other beneficiaries.
Trusts are established either for specified purposes or beneficiaries, or both. They are often established by testators in wills, for survivors; and, just as often, to benefit people during the lifetime of the founder. They exist to fulfill religious functions, for charitable purposes, and for business operations. But they are complex and their creation and management should not be attempted without expert help.
