Tsakane was called to the bar in 2014. He began his legal career at Mahlangu Nkomo Mabandla Ratshimbilani Attorneys (commonly known as MNMR Attorneys), a boutique commercial law firm in which he was a candidate attorney for a period of a year and 2 months. MNMR Attorneys merged with Edward Nathan Sonnenbergs Inc. (commonly known as ENS) in 2008. As a consequence of this merger, he became employed by ENS and worked there from second year candidate attorney level until 28 February 2013, a period of just over 5 years.

During his employment at ENS, Tsakane specialised in all aspects of competition law. At the time of leaving ENS, he was a second year Senior Associate.

Tsakane’s competition law experience extends to all aspects of competition law, including statutory merger notifications, complaint proceedings, cartel conduct and regulation of prohibited practices, abuse of dominance, exemption applications and the corporate leniency regime, performing audits of companies and competition law related litigation.

In addition to the above, Tsakane has authored competition law related articles for Getting the Deal Through, Business Law and Tax Review and Without Prejudice; and prepared case head notes for Butterworth’s Competition Law Reports.

Subsequent to his resignation from ENS, commenced his pupillage at the Johannesburg Bar in January 2014.

Tsakane attended high school at King Edward VII School. He attended university at the University of the Witwatersrand and graduated in 2007 with a Bachelor of Laws Degree.
