Civil Litigation

Our Litigation Department has expertise in all aspects of High Court and Magistrate Court litigation. Our Litigation Department is geared to servicing corporate and individual clients and is well able to provide expertise in almost any area of litigation. Proper litigation requires an expert approach and our litigation attorneys are specialists with regards to the rules of the South African law.

Our expertise range from large commercial matters to small debt recoveries and our firm is currently acting on behalf of numerous clients in various legal matters. At Le Roux & Du Plessis Attorneys, our approach to litigation is governed by our recognition of the fact that clients, whether Plaintiff or Defendant, do not enter litigation by choice, but as a final resort to enforce or protect their rights. We therefore encourage early consultation regarding difficulties and potential disputes.

Against the background of ever increasing and prohibitive costs of litigation, in our experience, lengthy, expensive litigation can often be avoided by the identification of appropriate alternatives to litigation, but, should we feel that litigation is necessary, we act accordingly and vigorously to ensure the best possible prospect of a favourable result for our client.
