The attorney business is all about people. While we believe that it is vital to know one’s clients as well as the esteemed opponent, we also continuously aim to surround ourselves with unique individuals who, in fact, form the very core of our operations.

We have a no-nonsense approach and aim to find pragmatic and workable solutions for complex problems. Our key legal areas include M&A, Joint Ventures, Corporate and Commercial, Employment, Real Estate, Dispute Resolution and Arbitration.

Our team spirit is immersive and easily recognizable, and we believe that with our team we can take our clients around the Cape of Good Hope or Cape Horn, if needed!
