The firm was founded in 1985 by Martin Hopkins. With the help of Helen Van Der Vaart the firm stemmed from humble beginnings, doing bank recoveries for Stannic Bank, as it was then as well as litigation.
In 1988 Vaughan Southey, an admitted attorney and conveyance, joined the growing firm and in 1992 the conveyancing department became more prominent with the arrival of Annie Struwig. Growing from strength to strength the firm went on to secure work from all 4 of the major banks.
1996 saw the firm expand, and the directors took a decision to move to bigger premises.
8 years later the commercial banking division began and in 2008 the firm expanded further after taking over Wynand Janse Van Rensburg Incorporated..
In 2014 the Pietermaritzburg branch was established and in 2016 the Newcastle branch relocated and was renamed. A new brand of attorneys was born.
