Not quite. Sometimes the differences are obvious. But more often the differences between attorneys are subtle yet incredibly important, and marked by a fine line. This fine line runs through Gunstons Attorneys and has an impact on everything we do. We are profoundly conscious of the difference we can make, and the difference that comes from serving you from the right side of that very fine line.
Hear it from some of our clients, and friends in the industry
I would like to express my appreciation of your law firm for going the extra mile in finalising a merger agreement between our two Harley-Davidson Dealerships, over the recent Christmas period. I was referred to your firm by Nolands from whom I sought accounting advice at a time when everyone was shutting down for the year end Christmas break. Nolands referred me to your team and within one day we were in a meeting with two of your lawyers, a Nolands Partner and one of their Tax Consultants. Nothing too exceptional about this, except that this took place at one days notice, at a time when professional firms were shutting down for the year end Christmas break. In no time at all, I was editing draft agreements whilst on vacation in the bush, and final agreements were in place before Christmas. As it happens, the other party’s attorney could only review the documents after the New Year, but commented on the professional manner in which the agreements were drafted, and did not recommend any changes to their client. I came away from this experience with a sense that I was dealing with a team who really cared, and provided a personal service of excellence.
At Yuppiechef we look to partner with like-minded companies, so it was great to find attorneys that understood us and looked at life in the same way. This year Gunstons has helped and guided us through everything from sales agreements to MOI’s and at each step along the way have taken time to get to know us and work out what makes us tick. If you are a growing business that needs a legal team to help you on your journey, Gunstons could be a great fit.
Over the last few years RE/MAX of Southern Africa has utilised a myriad of services provided by Gunstons Attorneys. My experience with the company is one of professionalism, commitment and dedication to meeting the client’s expectations. One of the major benefits of dealing with Gunstons is the ease of access to senior personnel in different departments and their quick response time to critical issues raised. I would certainly recommend Gunstons Attorneys to businesses both small and large looking for quality service delivery at reasonable rates.

In both our lending and advisory businesses AfrAsia Corporate Finance is required to register several bonds every month. Given the importance of the security we hold, the service provided by our conveyancing firm is of huge importance to our business. We have built a long-standing relationship of trust with Gunstons Attorneys. Ulrik and his team never fail to attend to our high standards and demands. Gunstons sends us weekly reports on all security we hold and rapidly respond to all of our ad hoc requests. We highly recommend the firm’s conveyancing department.

I have worked with Gunstons Attorneys since 1997, the fact that I still support them is testimony to the faith I have in their ability to attend to matters efficiently and with utmost care and professionalism.
The staff are friendly and the offices are completely devoid of the typical “stiff upper lip attitude” one usually gets when visiting a law firm’s offices.

Recently my wife and I embarked on the daunting task of purchasing our first family home. Early on we decided that we would try and get both the transfer and bond legalities processed through the same firm, hopefully to reduce overall costs in the process. When our bond was approved by FNB, we were able to do so and we approached Gunston Attorneys. We have found their service exceptional and the overall rates charged very favorable. We can strongly recommend them to anyone needing legal assistance.

As an estate agent, I am regularly asked by sellers to advise on or recommend a reliable, good conveyancing company, and I have found Gunstons Attorneys to be consistent in their excellent, professional and personal service plus their expertise and knowledge of the transfer process with regards to residential property. I am confident in recommending them when I have made a successful sale, as I know that the after-sales transfer process will be correctly and efficiently handled by Gunstons Attorneys with regular updates, and that my clients will be looked after well. This gives me peace of mind.
I have also received numerous positive feedback comments from my clients. For example: They are willing to go to the clients premises or home to have documents signed, if necessary, which is especially helpful for elderly people. I can definitely recommend Gunstons Attorneys!
I recently registered a bond with Nedbank and Gunstons were appointed as the conveyancing attorneys. Nedbank allocate attorneys to each job via a cyclical system from a pre-approved pool. Evidently I hit the jackpot.
From my first interaction with Gunstons to when the money was in my account, the process was flawless. My interaction with Liezel Redelinghuys, a paralegal at Gunstons, was an absolute pleasure, as she effected each step of the process and interaction with me with a professional yet wonderfully cheery demeanour.
As an estate agent I depend on the complementary role of the conveyancer in order to conclude a successful sale. Over the years I have come to know the Gunstons team well and can recommend them with confidence. They provide ongoing training, which is vital to estate agents considering the changes in legislation in recent years, and are willing to offer support and advice at all times. This ensures that I take care of my clients in the best possible way. Thank you Grant, Ulrik and Gill for your professional and friendly service.

Gunstons is and will remain a firm of attorneys that I happily recommend when dealing with conveyancing… Appreciated for their all round professionalism, expertise and above all their “hands on” approach. A staff that goes that extra mile.

When starting out in the property business 7 years ago , I asked around for some recommendations on a reputable transferring attorney. The same name kept coming up: Gunstons Attorneys. So I thought I would give them a try, and I have never looked back. With prompt, friendly service and regular updates on all my transactions, I highly recommend Gunstons.

I have been using the conveyancing services of Gunstons Attorneys for approximately 8 years now. In that considerable period of time, I have yet to have a negative or frustrating experience with any of the staff at Gunstons, something which is all too common with conveyancing attorneys. All the staff members I have dealt with at Gunston`s Attorneys, without exception, understand that together, we are in the services industry, and offer the absolute best service to my customers. When situations arise which require extra attention, they are always happy to assist me in obtaining the best possible outcome for my clients. This is obviously paramount to my reputation too, and so I am always happy to recommend them for the job.
