Our Practice Areas

Administrative Law

In terms of our national Constitution everyone has the fundamental right to administrative action that is lawful, reasonable and procedurally fair

Land Use Planning and Development

The pre-construction phase of property development is notorious for the complicated and somewhat disjointed statutory framework within which it functions.

Environmental Law

The country’s changing legal and regulatory landscape seeks to protect the delicate resources while growing the economy, thereby promoting a harmony between the economic system and the ecosystem.

Heritage Law

The impact on South Africa’s heritage resources is an increasingly important consideration when new property developments are conceptualised.


A Conveyancer is an attorney who has passed an additional, specialised examination and who has been admitted by the High Court of South Africa to practice as a Conveyancer.

General Property Law

A large contingent of our clients comes from the property development sector and the conclusion of contracts for the acquisition, sale and/or lease of immovable property form part of their day to day business.

Home Owners Associations and Sectional Titles Living

We represent Body Corporates, Home Owners Associations and residents of secure living complexes in a range of matters concerning Estate Living.


Trusts in general hold and invest property and/or assets for the benefit of its beneficiaries. Trusts are managed by Trustees who stand in a fiduciary relationship to the beneficiaries and whose powers are governed by the Trust Deed.
