Years of experience have equiped us to deal with all aspects of divorces and family law in general on our clients' behalf in the most appropirate way the circumstances might dictate.
DISPUTE RESOLUTIONDispute Resolution generally refers to one of several different processes used to resolve disputes between parties, including negotiation, mediation, arbitration and litigation. Dispute resolution is the process of resolving a dispute or a conflict by meeting at least some of the parties’ needs and addressing their interests. We aim to assist clients in preventing disputes from escalating and resolving disputes speedily and cost effectively.
In our experience there has been a marked increase in the number of disputes which become resolved outside of courts. We regularly assist clients in achieving satisfactory outcomes in business disputes through negotiation or arbitration.
INSOLVENCY, LIQUIDATIONS, DEBT RECOVERY, REPOSSESSIONS AND EVICTIONSWe advise a wide variety of traditional stakeholders in restructuring and insolvency cases. We are equally experienced advising companies, insolvency administrators, and creditors at all levels of the capital structure.
Debt recovery forms an integral part of our practice and we pride ourselves in our efficiency levels and the results which we have achieved and continue to achieve.
We are seldom called upon to assist with repossessions and evictions notwithstanding that our experienced professionals are more than able to assist in this regard if called upon to do so.
PUBLIC PROCUREMENTProcurement processes are exercises where, with the right approach, time and effort can be saved and value can be added, at almost every turn. We offer a comprehensive range of services which fully recognise this and seek to make our clients’ Public Procurements as wrinkle-free as possible. The risk of signed contracts being declared invalid due to procedural irregularities during the procurement process, or clients being subjected to onerous and unsustainable contract terms can be avoided with an awareness of where the risks lie and effective forward planning.
CORPORATE GOVERNANCEThe object of corporate governance rules is to improve the quality of leadership which boards of directors are expected to give to their businesses. Corporate governance guidelines seek to assist directors to understand what good governance requires of them.
Knowledge, experience and integrity are among the most important qualities an attorney can and should possess. We take pride and are confident in the level of services provided within each of our specialized practice areas.
