South Africa

At Carter Lemon Camerons, our experienced team of solicitors is available to provide English law services to clients in South Africa.

Our head of litigation and arbitration, Seamus Smyth, graduated and qualified as an attorney in South Africa and has for many years maintained a close working relationship with South Africa’s legal profession.  He receives referrals and instructions from South African clients direct and from attorneys throughout South Africa, large and small, on behalf of clients who need assistance with an English matter.

Typical work for South African clients:

  • Litigation/arbitration
  • Asset tracing
  • Company/commercial law
  • Administration of estates
  • Disputed estates
  • Trust disputes
  • UK property investment for both individuals and businesses
  • Administrative/formal matters such as serving edictal citations and attending to notarial execution of documents

Our team takes pride in a friendly, professional and plain-language approach to the matters that are brought to us and will work to achieve the best possible outcome for all our clients.  We are sensitive to funding difficulties clients have resulting from an adverse Rand/Pound exchange rate.

Seamus Smyth visits South Africa regularly and welcomes the opportunity to meet clients and attorneys face to face (with a preference, at the weekend, for meeting on a golf course!).  When asked he will deliver a short, light-hearted overview of the ins and outs for South Africans of instructing English solicitors.

Seamus has postponed his March 2020 trip and has not yet made plans for another trip in 2020. He plans to be in South Africa in mid/late March 2021

Email address is unchanged, and South African cell phone is 071 258 3295.
