HJV Attorneys offers a Legal Audit Service, which entails a strategic analysis of your business or organisation to determine any legal issues that might be underlying and threatening:
Establishing business entities
Choosing a business entity is one
of the first steps new businesses
should take, and we will guide you through this process.
When it comes to a business and corporate management, compliance refers to the company obeying all of the legal laws and regulations in terms of how they manage the business, their staff, and their treatment towards their consumers. The concept of compliance is to make sure that corporations act responsibly.
We will review and/or draft your organisation’s Employee Manuals, Handbooks, Policies and Disciplinary Codes, and we will scrutinise each employee’s employment terms.
For many companies, contract management will prove integral in terms of bridging the gap between operational efficiency and savings compliance. In line with fair and just labour governance, we will ensure that your employment practices comply with South African Labour Law.
Our team will review your organisation’s existing Terms and Conditions and related policies, and will recommend a strategy that addresses any issues surrounding web related legislation.
Intellectual Property Protection
It is important that you effectively manage your or your business’s IP to ensure you get the best protection. The creator of IP is not necessarily the owner, and it is important that ownership is addressed through appropriate contractual arrangements – especially in terms of dilution protection and compliance with the Protection of Personal Information Act.
Making use of the appropriate procurement contract is crucial to the success of any given project. Understanding the nuances of each type of contract is important as they all come with their own advantages and disadvantages. Our team will advise you on the different types of contracts available for use, know which ones to use as well as when the best time would be, resulting in a streamlined and cost-effective approach.
As Labour Law experts, we are available to act as Chairperson of disciplinary hearings to ensure a fair and unbiased procedure. The Chairperson is there to gather the facts provided by both parties and to make afair decision.
A document retention policy lays the ground rules for how your company will manage documents and/or records from creation to destruction. We will assist you with this process – both in terms of auditing your existing approach and drafting and implementing a company-wide policy.
Civil and labour mediation involves a process by which a mediator assists the parties in a legal dispute by facilitating discussions between the parties; assisting them in identifying issues; exploring areas of compromise; and generating options in an attempt to resolve the dispute.
Cored around the legal dispute reality, HJV Attorneys offers assistance in a cost effective manner provided within circumstances.
Litigation is costly and is able of being resolved by means of an alternative dispute solution. We explore the possibilities of amicable and economical settlements, mediation and arbitration.
Should none of the above be feasible, we offer an expert hand in Civil Litigation in the High, Regional and Magistrates Court (not limited to these Courts), as well as Labour Legislation and Dispute Resolution in the CCMA and Labour Court.
