From my clients

Thanks for a great presentation last night, it came as a Godsend.  I was on the verge of having a lawyer who was not very familiar with the travel trade, draw up these documents.  So you have saved me thousands of Rands.

Just for the record, a resounding thank you for your input in the last few days.

I look forward to the relationship between us improving our lot in life and particularly look forward to sharing issues of a legal nature with other agencies in this area in an attempt to not only save costs but to limit exposure and minimize our risk

We are extremely impressed with the speedy turn around times – we never have to wait more than 24 hours for responses

Your fee structure is certainly far more affordable than comparable “Sandton firms” and we believe we are getting value for our money

The quality of feedback is excellent – we know that we can rely on your input

A major plus for us is your intimate knowledge of and contacts within the hospitality industry

You are a true professional and a privilege indeed it is for me to have met you and work with you

You are such a wealth of information as well as inspiration with regards to our industry

Thanks a million for sharing with us. You are really a Godsent to this industry

Besides being a personal friend, I have found Louis’s professional response sound, instantaneous, easy to comprehend and advise that I am able to rely on

It has always been a pleasure to work with you. You always go the extra mile and have provided immediate help on numerous occasions when we have had legal issues. We value your personal service and the sound advice you provide.
