OUR SERVICES

Legal Services


A diversity of legal services across a number of different departments.

Gunstons offers legal services in the following areas:

Our commercial attorneys practise as a specialised team which is committed to ensuring the success of your business.

Dispute resolution requires a combination of legal skill, relevant experience, appropriate force and determination, as well as tact and wisdom. Over-emphasizing one or two of these characteristics at the expense of others can lead to winning the battles but losing the war.
The Gunstons dispute resolution attorneys are always alive to what is needed to resolve a dispute in your favor. Sometimes it involves an all-out litigation offensive, where every strategy is used to gain the upper hand. Other times, and sometimes as litigation takes its course, it is advisable to pursue a “win-win” approach through mediation.

  • I have worked with Gunstons Attorneys since 1997

    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.

  • Exceptional Service

    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.

  • I Can Definitely Recommend Gunstons Attorneys!

    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 Hit The Jackpot!

    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 demeanor.

    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.

  • I have never looked back

    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.

  • They help me to obtain the best possible outcome for my clients

    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.
