Some of the areas covered include land use management and planning, human settlements, environment, procurement and education. Our team members have also participated in various capacities in several commissions of enquiry.
We have extensive experience in acting for employers, trade unions and government in employment law matters. This includes participating in the drafting of the Labour Relations Act and other labour legislation, arguing precedent setting cases in various forums and providing opinions on complex employment law matters.
Our expertise extend beyond South Africa given the role played by members of our team in drafting labour legislation in several other jurisdictions. Our involvement in leading employment law publications also ensures that we remain at the forefront of labour law.
We have seasoned forensic investigators who detect and investigate white-collar offences. Once the problem has been identified we advise on how to deal with the perpetrators from a labour and criminal law perspective. We also assist in ensuring that adequate management systems are in place so that similar offences are not committed in the future.
