At Van Der Want Attorneys, we provide legal services of high quality at a fraction of the cost charged by the big commercial law firms. We are responsive, efficient and take pride in the integrity with which we approach every matter.
Negotiating a transaction on behalf of a client requires subtlety and emotional intelligence as often as it requires firmness and a solid understanding of the applicable law. Too often, lawyers adopt an inappropriately litigious approach when negotiating a deal, resulting in the attorney being obstructive to what the client actually wants.
We provide strategic legal advice and assistance to our commercial clients and have experience in negotiating and concluding a wide range of commercial transactions from sales of shares and businesses, drafting of shareholders agreements, black economic empowerment transactions, share schemes and transactions in the mining industry. We also specialise in business restructurings, general contract negotiations and drafting of contracts. We are also expert commercial litigators.
As commercial lawyers we strive to strike a balance between ensuring that a transaction is structured efficiently and, above all, legally, while doing everything possible to ensure that our client gets what it needs from the deal.”
