Beyond the need to merely operate as a top-ranked highly successful corporate and commercial law firm, Werksmans strives to make a difference in all we do. Our Stellenbosch lawyers have pledged pro bono legal services to start-ups and small businesses for a period of one-year (October 2019 – October 2020). The terms are as follows:

  • the consultation must be about legal advice in respect of a young or new business ;
  • appointments will be between 16h00 and 18h00 on a Monday;
  • the client must attend our offices in Stellenbosch;
  • the appointment will be confirmed after a brief telephonic conversation to ensure that the client complies with the first requirement; and
  • no fees for the first consultation.

We will offer assistance in respect of the following disciplines:

  • requirements to start a business;
  • business structures, such as companies and partnerships;
  • shareholders agreements;
  • general tax for small businesses;
  • protection of intellectual property; and
  • contracts in general.
