Our Commercial Practice Group is the largest commercial division of its kind in central South Africa. With a broad range of expertise areas, national and international clients are assisted with commercial, corporate, tax, structuring, planning, compliance, intellectual property, BEE and other business related aspects. With specialist internal tax, fiduciary, estate planning, BEE, compliance and consulting units, our teams are able to work and offer solutions across multiple sectors and address any commercial need a client may have.

Our Dispute Resolution Practice Group provides all manner of dispute resolution support services, ranging from commercial litigation, mediation, labour and employment law to public sector, administrative and constitutional law. Professionals represent clients in all forums and with a dedicated Appeals Department, also work closely with correspondent firms on appeal matters to the Supreme Court of Appeal. Professionals work across multiple industry sectors and collaborate with colleagues in the commercial and property divisions as necessary to provide effective dispute resolution results for clients. All matters are carefully managed and professionals work closely with clients and management to mitigate unnecessary litigation and drive disputes aggressively to conclusion.

Our Property Practice Group is organised into specialist units capable of providing highly effective and expert support services to clients. Our Bond Centre focus on all the aspects of property finance and works closely with the Commercial Property Finance Centre on aspects relating to the complex environment of commercial property financing and securities. Our Transfer Centre specialises in the efficient and effective transfer of properties and works closely with all the major banks, estate agents, bond orginators and other stakeholders to assist buyers and sellers to transfer their properties as efficiently and quickly as possible. Lastly, our specialist Development Centre focuses on the more complex side of property and township developments, subdivisions, consolidations and provides all the support needed to undertake property developments successfully. All our property units work closely together to assist clients with their property matters across South Africa and internationally if so required.

Our Support Services division enables our professionals to focus on their practices by providing all the necessary support, infrastructure, resources and logistics needed for the successful operation of a large law firm.

Our Knowledge Centre, staffed by full-time legal practitioners with access to vital legal resources and literature, provides on-the-go research support to our professionals for speedier and more accurate answers and solutions to our client needs.
