Our Competitive Drive

Our aim is to deliver services in a manner that is both efficient and cost-effective. To achieve this, our Lawyers are held to the highest level of diligence. From Partners to Associates, we have mobilised requisite specialisation to match clients ’ specific needs . We have the best set of hands for the clients ’ particular instructions . We would hardly assign a general practitioner to a client. Where our expertise is inadequate, we humbly decline to take instructions or collaborate with appropriate  experts  [with  the  consent  of  the client]

We have grown rapidly both in terms of headcount and expert/specialised legal knowledge as detailed below. Our Lawyers have attended numerous Continuous Professional Development [CPD] and/or Continuous Legal Education trainings at some of the most prestigious universities and training institutions in Africa and beyond. These include Harvard Law School, University of Cape Town, University of Johannesburg, University of Pretoria

, Witwatersrand University, the Link Centre and the International Law Institute, in Washington DC.

We have a realistic attitude to pricing. We are aware that your decision on legal advisors will be based on both expertise and competitive pricing.

Our charging will always be consistent and transparent. We will ensure that our bills are sent periodically and timeously. As a dynamic Practice, we are open to different fee structures including billable hours, capped fees, and discounted fees with the possibility of a contingency fee. We seek to engage with you to determine which approach best suits you.
