Our practice provides innovative property solutions whether from a legal, residential or commercial perspective.
We offer our clients dedicated estate and trust planning services.
Our expertise and extensive knowledge of the legal system allows us to advise our clients of their rights and to represent them in a way that best serves their interests. Should it become necessary to enforce your rights, our litigation team will utilise their considerable skills to your benefit.
VanderMerwe & Robertson Inc. specialises in providing advice in relation to a
range of complex commercial insurance matters. We provide advice to national
and international insurance companies, underwriters, brokers and insureds.
Commercial Law governs the areas of business, trade, commerce, sales and consumer transactions. We pride ourselves on being business-minded and we find that our business acumen is of great value to our clients.
Arbitration is a popular and widely used method of commercial dispute resolution.
We expect a new International Arbitration Act will be enacted in 2016 and that the modernisation of our arbitration law will stimulate the growth of South Africa as a major arbitration centre for the region.
As transactional attorneys, we advise on complex B-BBEE transactions.
Our team includes attorneys experienced in high-level and complex restructurings and turnarounds, informal and formal business rescue and recovery proceedings. We assist with restructuring, in addition to managing complex business rescue, insolvency and litigation proceedings.
In recent years, the face of construction and engineering in South Africa has changed exponentially. Projects have become bigger and more complex from almost every perspective. As lawyers we combine detailed legal knowledge with commercial awareness and are able to understand the needs of all stakeholders in the engineering and construction value chain.
We advise both public and private sector clients on the institution and defence of judicial review proceedings; requests for reasons and access to information; regulatory law disputes; all issues related to media freedom, including defamation and privacy (both pre- and post-publication), data protection, constitutional litigation and challenging or defending exercises of public power, including legislation.
We regard ourselves as the custodians of our clients’ family legal health. Our job is to support and protect every aspect of that life from antenuptial contracts to wills. Our clients can always count on us to take care of every family matter, no matter how fractious, with tact, respect and complete confidentiality.
