One of the Cape’s oldest legal firms, Greyvensteins Incorporated, has expanded its specialist capacity by introducing a Labour Department to focus on all employment relations and labour law issues.
The specialist division continues the firm’s constant focus on delivering diverse specialist services in key areas of law.
The department is to be headed by Port Elizabeth bred and educated Ali Ncume, who gained his LL.B from Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University and served his articles at Greyvensteins.
Says Ncume: “There is a need within the community for specialist labour law legal representation. The labour department is in keeping with our intention to maintain growth and expansion in all areas of law and in areas where we see the need for a presence.”
He said that the country, as a member of the International Labour Organisation (ILO), has to contend with complex and detailed regulations to redress the power imbalance between employers and employees.
Port Elizabeth-based Greyvensteins has operated from its head office and an office in Cape Town for over half a century and recently expanded into Gauteng with an office in Fourways, Johannesburg.
In the past four years Greyvensteins has been recognised as one of the Deeds Office’s top performers in the Cape Province. It has won numerous awards since its inception and is an associate of the exclusive Phashoane Henney Group, South Africa’s largest association of independent law firms.
This assemblage, selected on the basis of members’ unique skills, expertise and integrity, enables clients, regardless of where they are based, to access the country’s top legal specialists to secure the best possible outcomes for their cases.
As a 26% black owned company, it is a level one BBBEE contributor. It employs 50 people, including 13 qualified legal specialists in various property-related fields.
