OUR AREAS OF LEGAL EXPERTISE
A combination of hard work, devotion and our specialised expertise has created a legacy of legal excellence, which we have been building on since 1919, and which we believe will carry us successfully into the future.
We pride ourselves on offering excellent service to our clients as well as a cost-effective and expeditious turn-around time, which is of utmost importance in all of the fields of expertise we offer. Each field has a dedicated team of experienced and specialised attorneys focusing on that field, while at the same time maintaining a sound general legal knowledge, ensuring that our clients receive service of the highest quality.
Property Law and Notarial Services
Our specialised conveyancers and notaries pride themselves on giving bespoke, efficient and cost-effective service, using their extensive knowledge of and years of collective experience in these areas of legal practice. A dedicated team of conveyancing experts will assist you with any legal property query and solution you may need. We specialise in all property-related services, including property transfers, estate transfers, bonds, bond cancellations, township and sectional title developments, commercial and residential sale contracts, lodgements and registrations at the Deeds Offices and any property research, investigations and reporting.
We also have a large correspondent practice. We are proud to be on the panels of Investec Bank, Standard Bank, Standard Trusts, Nedbank and Nedbank Private Wealth.
Our team of notaries will attend to all notarial needs, including Notarisation Apostille and ante-nuptial contracts.
Our administrators of deceased estates offer decades of combined experience in winding up deceased estates efficiently, compassionately and diligently. We attend to all queries with the various Master’s offices across the country and we handle all deceased related queries from inception until finalisation of the estate. We understand that at times of loss and bereavement, estate related matters can be very daunting for the loved ones left behind. We make it our priority to assist with the administration issues, thus allowing the family time and space to grieve. We also offer bespoke drafting services of Wills and, during the National Annual Wills Week, these services are extended to the public free of charge for standard (simple) Wills.
DISPUTE RESOLUTIONS & LITIGATION
Depending on which field your legal needs fall into, our litigation attorneys will use their specialised expertise to assist you in resolving and finalising the dispute.
A team of dedicated attorneys will be assembled to represent you in civil cases and manage all phases of the litigation process from investigation, pleadings and discovery to pre-trial, trial or settlement and appeal.
Whether you are the plaintiff or the defendant, our specialised attorneys will conduct a case investigation to determine if enough evidence exists to file a lawsuit or whether sufficient evidence exists to defend a lawsuit. However, our attorneys will consider the possibility of a pre-litigation settlement before taking any matter to court, because we understand that the costs of litigation can be burdensome.
Locating witnesses, taking witness statements, gathering documents, interviewing the client and investigating the facts leading to the dispute are all a part of this investigation process.
We litigate to win.
COMMERCIAL & SPECIALISED ADVISORY
Commercial law is sometimes more commonly known as business law. As a business owner or trader, and especially as a start-up, it is essential for you to have a partner to advise you on all the legal aspects and issues relating to your business.
We are proud of being experts in commercial matters, including the drafting and review of commercial contracts (sales, leases, joint ventures, shareholders’ agreements, association agreements, intellectual property transactions, confidentiality and restraint agreements), and litigation in the commercial sphere.
Prevention is better than cure, and we ensure that our clients receive the best advice to ensure that legal disputes do not flow from your commercial activity.
