Vermeulen Attorneys provide expert litigation services to individuals and businesses throughout South Africa.
What is Litigation?
Litigation is the process of enforcing one’s rights through the courts. It can be a complex and time-consuming exercise. That’s why it’s essential to choose a legal team with the skills, knowledge, and experience to guide you through the process.
Litigation in the Magistrates’ Courts
Most litigation in South Africa takes place in the Magistrates’ Courts, which are the lower courts in the Republic. These courts generally handle matters that are less serious than those heard by the superior courts, such as small claims, minor criminal cases, and some family law matters.
At Vermeulen Attorneys, we frequently appear in the following Magistrates’ Courts: Roodepoort, Randburg, Johannesburg, Krugersdorp, and Randfontein.
High Court Litigation
High Courts fall under the category of Superior Courts, and they usually handle more serious cases. There are various divisions of the High Court in South Africa, each with its own area of jurisdiction. In the past, attorneys exclusively used advocates for High Court litigation. However, legislation passed in the 1990s now empowers attorneys to appear in the High Court themselves.
At Vermeulen Attorneys, we believe in taking a measured, strategic and calculated approach to High Court litigation. We have extensive experience litigating and appearing in the High Courts. Our focus is on achieving the best possible outcomes for our clients as expeditiously as possible.
