South Africa is a constitutional democracy that adheres to the Rule of Law, meaning that all people are subject to the same laws of justice. Litigation involves the legal process for settling those disputes or claims between and amongst natural persons, juristic persons and the State that requires objective determination.
Labour law is a complex legal area in South Africa. It is essential, for both employers and employees, that the correct contractual and policy documents are in place which would cover an array of employee rights and entitlements. Companies of all sizes require specialist and practical legal advice and guidance on a wide range of labour law issues.
Estates & Trusts
When a person dies, it is the duty of his or her executor to determine the financial position of the estate as soon as possible. If the total debt of the estate is larger that the total value of the assets in the estate, the estate is insolvent and thus administered under Section 34 of the Administration of Estates Act 66 of 1965.
For a proper understanding of the philosophy of the South African Law of debt collecting, it is first of all necessary to have a broad understanding of the rights of debtors and creditors.
