Contracts

A good contract can prove extremely useful when it comes to enforcement of the contract and relying on the rights contained therein.
We ensure that each contract is individually drafted according to the specifications and requirements of the situation at hand.
Extensive research is done before a contract is finalised.
We draft contracts from inception, we vet contracts before you sign them to ensure that your rights are adequately protected, and we can facilitate the process at
     your request.
We also advise on interpretation, application and enforcement of contracts where this may be unclear.
We assist you in determining the best manner in which to approach a contractual dispute to achieve a satisfactory outcome.



Trusts

A trust is a legal entity that is able to own property and other assets.
It is an agreement between an owner of assets and trustees
This agreement provides for the trustees to undertake that they will administer the trust's assets with the necessary care to the benefit of the beneficiaries.
This is an efficient and flexible way to ensure that assets are looked after and objectively managed and controlled by appointed trustees in the best interests of the
     beneficiaries.

There are different kinds of Trusts and we can discuss what would be the best option for you.



Companies

Registration of a company is regulated in terms of the Companies Act, 2008.
A company is a legal persona which has capacity and powers to act on its own.

There are different types of companies that can be registered and we would be able to advise you on your options.



Civil Litigation

We assist our clients in all avenues of dispute resolution and can therefore advise on choosing the most appropriate method of dispute resolution, which may not always be the protracted route of civil litigation.

We aim to resolve disputes quickly and effectively with as little disruption to your life and to your business as possible. Our services include :
Contractual disputes
Collections
Claims for damages
Payment for services rendered
National Credit Act disputes
Consumer Protection related litigation

We also act as correspondent attorney for attorneys not within the jurisdiction of the courts.



Debt collection

We assist in debt collections from debtors who have not paid.
We have an effective debt collection department who regularly successfully collect monies on behalf of our clients.
We can assist you with your debt collection at any stage in the process : a Letter of Demand, Summons, Default judgment or Blacklisting.

If someone has taken judgment against you or blacklisted you - we can help you to get the judgment rescinded provided there are grounds to do so.



Conveyancing and property transactions

We assist with the transfer of property. Only an attorney who is also admitted as a conveyancer may attend to the conveyancing of property and the registration of mortgage bonds. The conveyancer is usually appointed by the Seller to transfer the immovable property although this can be negotiated between the parties.

We assist with :
Lease agreements
Purchase and sale agreements
Transfer of a property
Conventional and sectional title conveyancing

Our fees are transparent and itemised for clients.

Mediation

Mediation is a structured process. It involves parties who are in conflict coming together in a neutral environment to discuss their issues with the assistance of an
     independent third party in order to resolve the issues in dispute.
The mediator is the independent third party who is qualified to facilitate the mediation and use the necessary principles to assist parties in reaching consensus
     and breaking a deadlock.
During mediation, potential solutions to issues are explored and alternative means of resolving the issues are found to assist parties to reach agreement in a
     manner that can preserve the relationships between the parties.
Mediation is a voluntary process and any solution that is reached will be found by agreement between the parties themselves.
The mediator will not decide on the outcome of the mediation but will assist in identifying the issues, facilitating the process and drafting the agreement between
     the parties.
Mediation is not an arbitration or legal/court process, where a decision is made by a third party.
The aim of mediation is for all parties to gain from the process (a 'win-win' situation) as well as to preserve human relationships.

We have qualified mediators to assist you in resolving your conflict whether it be a commercial dispute, employment dispute or family dispute.



Arbitration

Arbitration is a faster and often more cost-effective manner in which to resolve disputes.
It is also a less formal and more flexible procedure than a trial.
Arbitrations can also remain private as opposed to trials which are public proceedings.
In arbitrations, the arbitrator can be a person chosen by the parties who has particular qualifications, technical expertise or specialist knowledge relevant to the
     subject matter of the dispute which can be a valuable factor in certain specialised matters.
Awards made by the arbitrator are generally understood to be final and binding and may only be set aside in certain limited circumstances.
We have experience in representing clients in arbitrations and alternate dispute resolution forums.

We also have an in-house arbitrator with several years of experience.
