Corporate and Commercial Law

The commercial and corporate law department is geared to the full spectrum of the corporate and entrepreneurial client’s requirements in regard to commercial transactions and general commercial and corporate law practice.

The firm’s labour and employment law department deals with all aspects of this wide area of law. This includes litigation in the High Court, Labour Court and Labour Appeal Court as well as employment tribunals, such as the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) and various bargaining councils.

Family Law

We deal with all aspects of divorce matters (including cross border divorces); children’s matters (including matters relating to the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction);  drafting of bespoke ante-nuptial contracts / pre-nuptial agreements as well as post-nuptial agreements (both South Africa and international).
