Antenuptial Contracts
May 2018
The default matrimonial property law regime in South Africa is a marriage in community of property. This ensures that should the parties to the marriage enter into no agreement prior to signing the marriage register, the parties will be perceived to be married in community of property and share one joint estate including all the assets and liabilities of each party. To prevent this automatic consequence in our law, one needs to sign an Antenuptial Contract before signing the marriage register.

Cohabitation Relationships and its consequences
April 2018
South African law does not currently regulate cohabitation relationships and life partnerships, nor afford the same protection as those who are married in terms of the Civil Union and Marriage Act. It is therefore regulated by Common Law (rules that are not codified in legislation), however there is some legislative protection afforded.

Protection of Minority Shareholders
March 2018
Minority shareholders in both Companies and Close Corporations (members) enjoy a measure of protection against unfairly prejudicial, unjust or inequitable acts that arise from the conduct of majority shareholders or the Company.
