Core to our ability to service our clients effectively is our staff. Along with our professional, legal experience, and a very high tech and well developed infrastructure, we consider our staff to be our most important asset. Staff on every level are encouraged to study and we make very generous allowances for this. In addition, we focus greatly on enhancing skills, teaching new skills, training and development. We are proud to say that two of our candidates moved from secretarial to candidacy. Our junior bookkeeper is completing her Financial Accounting diploma with ICB. Our admin clerk has been trained and promoted to an accounting clerk. We believe in improving the lives of our staff by improving their skills and we actively look at ways to promote candidates who have the commitment to growth. Our office and HR manager is Reshika Reethram and our Financial Manager is Happy Ndovela Zulu.
In addition to the above core team members, our firm has access to and periodically in-sources specialized and experienced professionals, depending on the skill-set required for the project at hand. This ensures that we have at our disposal the best available resources for a project, where we need to augment our own repertoire of skills. However, we project manage and retain ultimate responsibility for the performance of any in-sourced experts thereby ensuring that our clients have a seamless experience in a project and a single point of contact and accountability.
We also have the flexibility to operate as part of a multi-disciplinary team, where a project calls for varied skill-sets that are not of a purely legal nature.
In addition, we have a well-developed correspondent base which allows us to litigate in most of the South African jurisdictions and across the border.
