ABOUT US

WHO WE ARE

Hennie van der Walt attorneys was established in 2009 and initially started as a general legal practice. Due to the specific legal problems that our clients approached us with over the years we realized that a more focused and specialized approach is necessary.

We therefore adapted our practice to better assist our clients with the specific problems they face on a day to day basis. This included employment issues in the workplace such as grievance procedures, change of employment conditions, disciplinary hearings, retrenchments and even dismissals.

Our firm was also approached my numerous landlords and tenants, each presenting a unique legal problem. We therefore became involved in the area of landlord and tenant law. This has led our firm to assist clients with specialized advice in this area and also involved instituting several eviction applications on behalf of clients.

Our client base is diverse and include, amongst others, retail companies, building contractors, estate agents, rental agents, managing agents, small to medium enterprises and private individuals.  

WHAT WE DO

Hennie van der Walt attorneys has grown into a niche law practice which focuses on several complex areas of the law. These practice areas include family law, landlord and tenant law, employment law, litigation, drafting of agreements and also the drafting of Wills and Estate planning.

Our client base is spread throughout the bigger Johannesburg and Pretoria region and is not specifically based in one geographical location. Our focus is rather to assist clients who need assistance in one of our practice areas than to exclusively focus on clients in one area.      

We have therefore dealt with matters in different courts and forums over the years. These include, amongst others, the Randburg, Pretoria, Roodepoort, Kempton Park, Johannesburg and Benoni Magistrate’s Courts as well as the Pretoria and Johannesburg High Courts.

We have also appeared in forums such as the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) in Johannesburg, Pretoria and Benoni.
