Commercial

Our practice area of Commercial Law includes Business Rescue, Contracts and other Corporate Services.

Business Rescue

We assist our clients to take all possible measures to protect their business and to remain viable. Our business rescue practitioners assist our clients with the development of a suitable business rescue plan that, when approved by their creditors, will ensure that a distressed company can be rescued. Our services include restructuring business affairs, business property, debt, equity and other liabilities to support the rescue effort or at least to support a better return for the company’s creditors and shareholders as opposed to an immediate liquidation. We will assist you to prepare a business rescue plan and to negotiate with relevant parties and creditors. In addition, we offer dispute resolution services and the drafting of applicable documentation and agreements.

Contracts

Is my company protected or not? What are my rights and how do I enforce them? Drafting a contract can appear to be deceptively easy, however the crux of good contracting drafting is not just about what is on the paper but how your rights are protected when you or your organisation needs it most. Our experienced staff will assist you and/or your company with the drafting of high-quality contracts and agreements that are clear and easy to read and will not only protect your rights but also ensure that your obligations are realistic and appropriate to the agreement that was reached with the other party. We have vast experience with the law of contract and can assist you with the drafting of, amongst others, Letters of Intent, Memoranda, Service and Supply Agreements, Capital Procurement Agreements, Transport and Shipping Agreements, Outsourcing Agreements and Intellectual Property Agreements.

Corporate Services

Some of our practitioners have been in business for themselves for more than 30 years and are fully conversant and highly experienced with the day to day legal requirements for effective corporate governance and running a company effectively while ensuring that all legislative and regulatory requirements applicable to companies are adhered to and implemented. We can provide you with tailor made services such as company secretarial services, drafting founding documents and registering companies, drafting and setting up memoranda of incorporation, drafting and setting up shareholder agreements, effecting necessary registrations such as COID, VAT, PAYE, TAX and SDL and drafting important company policies and procedures such as company vehicle usage, cell phone usage and Computer, Internet and Social Media usage in the company environment.
