About Us

our story

The practice was established in 2002, following the dissolution of the practice Chennels Albertyn, a pioneering South African labour firm.

We take pride in having established, on behalf of labour, numerous progressive precedents. A perusal of the law reports would indicate a significant rate of success in progressing the cause of labour generally through the medium of litigation.
