Van Zyl Ebrahim Cook Attorneys Incorporated is a law firm based in Johannesburg, South Africa. We are proud to work with South African residents as well as those based abroad who own or operate businesses in South Africa. As South African lawyers, we have a deep understanding of South African law and offer a wide range of services.
One of our core practices is commercial law and we offer services in almost every respect thereof, including commercial contract law, litigation, insolvency, debt collection and more. Take a look at our full range of services on this page.
Should you reside abroad and own or operate a business within South Africa, it is vital to form an ongoing business relationship with a law firm that you can trust. We’ll take the time to get to know your business, your short and long-term plans, and assist you in making decisions that lead you to the outcomes that you are working towards. We’ll help any company or business owner to always stay on the right side of the law when establishing contracts and negotiation. That means that there is less of a chance of encountering difficulty many years down the line. Proceeding in the best possible manner with South Africa lawyers that you can trust from the onset is a good way to lay a solid foundation for future growth.
We offer highly specialized services. Director and insolvency practitioner Safiyah Ebrahim Cook is a practicing member of the South African Restructuring and Insolvency Practitioners Association (SARIPA) and leads our team of experienced attorneys in insolvency cases.
Another of our core practice areas is retail, industrial and office leasing. We offer a myriad of related services, ranging from new leases, remedies on breach, repairs, and maintenance, subletting/assignment of lease, and termination. We represent industrial and office parks and shopping centers, as well as mixed-use office/retail complexes across South Africa.
Our debt collection services include negotiating commercial resolutions to debt disputes, large scale commercial recoveries, and advising clients on the process to minimize arrears. Through our membership with TransUnion Credit Bureau, we can blacklist your debtor twenty days after the letter of demand has been delivered, with everything done in accordance with the National Credit Act.
Forming a lasting working relationship with a law firm may seem strange to some, but it is vitally important to work with South Africa lawyers that you can trust. The better we understand you and your business, the more effectively we will be able to assist you.
