We also provide you with assistance in terms of business registrations, processes, procedures, policies and so forth.

Technology & Media Law

ICT law covers a very wide spectrum and it changes rapidly. Although it can stand in isolation, it is also a law that overlaps with many others.
With the enactment of laws such as PoPIA and the Cybercrimes Act, issues relating to ICT and Media law has come even more under the spotlight. Therefore in ICT law we don't just cover technology in isolation, but it may encompass matters relating to theft, fraud, malicious injury to property, pornography, evidence, contracts, telecomms, e-commerce, copyright, privacy, freedom of expression, and many more.

Family Law

This branch of law considers family matters such as marriage, civil unions, life partnerships and other domestic relationships. It also concerns divorce matters, parenting plans, child custody and maintenance.

Deceased Estates

We can assist you in drawing up a Will and Testament or if you are an executor of an estate, we can assist you in the winding up of the estate. There are numerous laws and rules to take into consideration with the winding up of a deceased estate. It is also a very tense process that can easily lead to disputes and feuds amongst family members.

Mediation & ADR

Mediation is one form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). Through mediation and ADR we attempt to settle disputes outside of the court. We believe that 90% of private law disputes can be settled outside of court at a fraction of the cost of litigation.
