Dario Milo

Partner, Webber Wentzel

Dario calls himself a "journalist trapped in a lawyer's body�. He developed his passion for media as an article clerk, and has represented Zapiro in cases against Jacob Zuma and the ANC. He has defended the Mail & Guardian, Carte Blanche, Avusa and The Star against the bare teeth of those who attempt to limit free speech. Satire, he feels, is fundamental in our society. Milo sees his job as protecting the Constitution and expects lawyers to protect the media, which in turn informs the electorate. Occasionally he gets called on to write opinion pieces and chat on radio talk shows. � Ilham Rawoot
