What we stand for

Established
  The law firm is based in Cape Town and was founded in 1998 as one of the first practices specialised in environmental law.


Innovative
Exploring new ways and also extending services into health and safety and food safety legal advice developed this firm into one of the top boutique environmental, health and safety law firms in South Africa.


Up-to-the-minute
Our expertise in legal register and updating services allow our clients to be always up-to-date, especially through our secured customer login services which offers online access to their Legal Register.


Reliable
We are reliable partners for environmental, health and safety consultants, EIA practitioners and the SABS (South African Bureau of Standards). Legal 500 nominated us as a niche environmental law firm in their South Africa online section of the Europe, Middle East and Africa 2009 edition.


Specialised
Our passion is the focus on our clients' specific needs. Our environmental, health and safety legal advice has grown tremendously over the years due to the absolute commitment to each client's individual industry.

Our client base includes large corporations (some of whom are blue chip multinationals) from the mining, automotive, food and beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), metal and steel, textile, construction, explosives/defence, general manufacturing and industrial sectors. This has resulted in us building up a thorough understanding of not only industrial or manufacturing processes involved, but also the resulting environmental impacts which need proper management and control.
Individual
Like legal advice, our environmental and health and safety legal registers compiles tailor made summaries, showing specified sections and regulations, titles and legal requirements and most importantly comments, actions required and implications to be recorded and documented.


National and international

We advise clients in South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Lesotho, Swaziland, Malawi and Zambia as well as in the EU.


Approachable
Our staff prides itself in offering personal and immediate service.
