Constitutional and administrative law


Meet the team

South Africa’s constitution has a significant impact on the way commercial enterprises and government entities operate and interact with customers and citizens, respectively. Our team of experienced constitutional lawyers has been involved in high-profile Constitutional Court cases on matters such as the right to housing, the interpretation of a section of the National Credit Act, and the right of banks to terminate customer relationships in a constitutional dispensation.

The team regularly advises individuals, government bodies and major corporations based in the country on implementing and challenging constitutional law. Although the issues we deal with are often complex, we provide clear opinions and practical advice in plain language.

We consider constitutional and administrative regulation in all aspects of our work, across every practice group, and ensure that our clients receive the proper and useful advice from both a commercial and a compliance perspective.

Our areas of work include

  • affirmative action, empowerment and employment equity developments
  • the Bill of Rights
  • challenging unconstitutional administrative action
  • challenging unconstitutional legislation
  • constitutional advice
  • constitutional litigation
  • contracts
  • equality jurisprudence and legislation
