OUR

SERVICES

We service a number of commercial and corporate clients, with a keen interest in the credit industry. Although we are confident that our professional personnel are well equipped and more than capable of advising and assisting both natural and legal persons in most aspects of commercial law, we believe that focusing on specific industries optimizes the quality of our services. With this in mind, we have focused on servicing inter alia major credit providers (and in particular banking institutions) in the retail and wholesale industries for more than two decades. This has allowed us to build a reputation as a trustworthy and respected law firm with considerable experience in various specialised banking practices.

The firm’s significant experience also extends to the areas of Corporate structuring, Compliance and Government procurement, Constitutional Court Litigation, Insolvency and Business Rescue Practice, all aspects relating to the Financial Services industry, Labour Law, Family Law, Information Technology Law and Conveyancing. Attention to detail has never been negotiable when it comes to servicing our clients. We ensure that one of our directors directly supervises and oversees every one of our specialized areas, whilst always training, challenging and motivating our junior professionals to grow in their particular fields of practice. Our mixture of experienced practitioners and ambitious young attorneys, coupled with an envious repertoire of postgraduate qualifications, has enabled us to excel in our areas of expertise.
