The collective experience and knowledge of our lawyers in various practice areas position us to deliver accurate, pragmatic and real solutions. We are in a fortunate position, as a specialist boutique law firm and due to our geographic location, to service businesses and corporate clients outside the Gauteng metropolitan areas. We have a rich body of clients in all corners of South Africa ranging from large corporations to small and medium entities in areas such as Limpopo, Mpumalanga, North-West, Free State, Kwa-Zulu-Natal and the Western Cape.
