CIVIL LITIGATION- MAGISTRATE’S COURT AND HIGH COURT
Over 30 years’ experience in contested litigation matters. Not the run of the mill approach in view of high fees and long drawn out procedures. Fees agreed on value being added as opposed to hourly rate approach. Satisfactory and speedy resolution in the majority of our cases in clients’ favour is the motto.
Hands on in liquidations and sequestration matters. Very effective tool in curbing unnecessary litigation. Enquiries and interrogations in terms of the Insolvency Act are utilized to advantage of the clients.
Our experience is that divorce matters are becoming a psychological war fare and are expensive, which is unnecessary. Our mediation approach from the start always has the interest of minor children at heart and it ensures a “happy” divorce scenario. Clients must be able to get on with their lives without children being harmed in the process. A formula for a maintenance procedure that practically works more effective than the Court process is put in place. Years of experience and over 1 000 matters under the belt gives us the edge.
Extra ordinary matters and complicated debt collection are being pursued in this department. Schools, body corporate and individual clients benefit from our efficiency and experience.
The majority of matters resulting in litigation, insolvency and formal debt collection are because of inferior commercial contracts that were signed. The meeting of the minds have to be portrayed in commercial, business and property contracts together with an attitude of co-operation, which recipe in our experience lead to successful contractual relationship. We have experience in Sale of Share Agreements; Shareholders’ Agreements; Sale of Business Agreements; Co-operation Agreements; Supply Agreements; Restraint of Trade Agreements ; Lease Agreements; and offer an effective, speedy and satisfying experience to clients. Fees are reasonable and unnecessary “padding” of contracts is avoided at all cost.
ADMINSTRATION OF ESTATES
Our expertise is combined with our auditors, Leslie Forssman and Partners. Electronic signature and lodgement procedures have been put in place in dealing with the Master’s Office and the affectivity has increased to a very high level.
PROPERTY AND CONVEYANCING MATTERS
Time is of the essence and our experience and energy in this department has to be tried and tested.
