As South Africa’s business environment evolves and matures, both domestically and globally
Cape Town, South Africa -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/14/2013 -- As South Africa’s business environment evolves and matures, both domestically and globally, the need for companies to exercise exceptional caution grows exponentially.
“We’ve developed enormously since 1994,” says Charl Coetzee, managing partner of the Cape Town-based firm Louw Coetzee & Malan Inc. attorneys. “And the legal minefield has become more challenging with each new developmental step.
“Aside from the plethora of new post-apartheid laws governing labour, black economic empowerment, shareholdings, relations with local communities and the environment, there are any number of crucial international laws that have an impact on how South African companies do business.
“Add to this challenging environment the simple demands of competition, cost containment and research and development, and the necessity of having access to the best legal advice and guidance becomes indispensable for survival,” Coetzee adds.
Louw Coetzee & Malan boasts a broad array of corporate and individual clients needing specialist legal services both in commercial law and in litigation. “Our strong grounding in commercial law sees us serve the divergent needs of companies from information technology, telecommunications and entertainment to banking, commodity trading, construction and even agriculture.
“Naturally there are many areas of commonality across commerce and industry segments, but there are also specific and individual needs when it comes to such things as mergers and acquisitions, IPOs, franchising, intellectual property and compliance with the legislative and regulatory environment,” says Coetzee.
“Thankfully South Africa’s business milieu is not as litigious as those in many other countries, but directors of companies today, irrespective of size or industry sector, need to have absolute faith in their legal advisors at all stages of operations. After all, running a profitable and efficient business is demanding enough. You don’t want to have to hassle about all the legal issues,” he adds.
