The noted international arbitration lawyer sat down to discuss his life, his career, and his professional philosophy.
JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA / ACCESSWIRE / October 12, 2022 / It is with great enthusiasm that acclaimed international arbitration lawyer Zuko Nonxuba announces that he is the subject of a new, in-depth interview. The interview, which was conducted by freelance journalist Stefan Junge on behalf of an online periodical aimed at entrepreneurs and businesspeople, was published on September 30, 2022.
Early in the piece, Zuko addresses a question about what inspired him to pursue a career in international arbitration law, replying, "It came from an old advocate that I remember particularly fondly. We met many, many years ago while he was involved in a commercial arbitration matter. He approached me and asked if I would like to work in that field, and he offered to guide me in my career if I did so. Because of his counsel, I discovered I was very much interested in commercial arbitration, and I've been practicing it ever since."
Further along in the article, Zuko Nonxuba is asked to dispense some advice to any young people in the readership aspiring to achieve success in their career. "Work hard. There is no substitute for it," he states emphatically, before adding, "Sometimes there are days when it's difficult and you're unsure whether whatever you're working on is going to succeed. Yet, the best, and sometimes only thing you can do is consistently work hard. Once again, there is no substitute for it."
