COMMERCIAL LAW

Commercial law in South Africa is governed by two main focal points; commercial contracts and litigation.

Our attorneys are fully capable of assisting and advising you in the drafting and perusing of any and all agreements and contracts necessary in the commercial sector. In so doing, we pride ourselves in meeting your expectations while focusing on your best interests, and providing advice which is both legally and commercially sound.

The second aspect of commercial law in South Africa is litigation. There are many instances where businesses in the commercial sector may require legal representation and advice when being sued, or require the assistance of an attorney to institute legal proceedings against individuals, groups or corporations. By contacting our attorneys, you ensure that your commercial law practitioner will be able to assist you effectively and expediently with the focus on an outcome which is commercially beneficial to you.

Other commercial law services we provide include:
  • Legal representation in Arbitration matters.
  • Liquidation, sequestration and business rescue matters
  • Registration of companies, close corporations and trusts
  • Drafting of purchase, lease, partnership, share sale, association agreements, shareholders agreements and others ancillary thereto
  • Standard terms and conditions, application for credit, suretyship and securities.
  • Drafting of employment agreements, commission based agreements and service level agreements
  • Tender documentation and compliance
  • Franchise agreements

Naamskending of Laster
June 2017
‘n Persoon maak homself skuldig aan naamskending waneer hy iemand se naam en eer skade aan doen deur verkeerde of vals inligting aan die publiek of 'n derde party te publiseer. Die eiser hoef slegs te bewys dat die opmerking prima facie op ‘n skending van sy reputasie neerkom en dat dit gepubliseer is.

The Non-Compete Clause
May 2017
It is common practice for purchasers to include, as part of an agreement for the sale of a business, a clause that prevents the seller from operating a similar business within a specified radius or within a specified time frame from the business that was sold. However, the purchaser should tread lightly when inserting a non-compete clause, as it might not necessarily be enforceable.
