Commercial Law

Current global economic changes have created the right conditions for businesses to capitalise on the unique and exciting opportunities available within South Africa (SA) and reaching into Africa.
Furthermore, as one of the most significant emerging markets, SA is moving closer to peers such as the BRICS countries, and continues to offer opportunities for investment, business expansion and other commercial activities at a time when the whole world suffers a recession. In this regard, SA's position is further strengthened by the Government's continued initiatives in areas such as Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment and infra-structural development. This is further enhanced by SA's sound banking system which provides a platform to conclude and finance a wide range of commercial transactions.
Commercial law governs the broad areas of business, trade, commerce, sales, and consumer transactions. Commercial law covers numerous issues of law, such as contracts, banking, insolvency, credit transactions, real estate and others. We at Marais Müller Hendricks understand and are passionate about the emerging market and opportunities in which we work.
