Our attorneys standing within the legal profession has been built over more than a decade. However, many of the values, characteristics and defining qualities from NVDB Attorneys’ early beginnings continue to shape the Firm today.
We see the law as an instrument of change, as a way forward. Our difference is often best demonstrated by how we work, our approach to innovation, and technology adoption.
At NVDB, we realise the importance of containing legal costs in a flat commercial market. For a long time, companies have treated legal services as an unavoidable and unpredictable cost. The push for lower costs and budget certainty is the most potent driver of change within the commercial sector. We have moved decisively to respond to it.
Value, efficiency, and a deep knowledge of clients’ needs – not simply billable hours – are the characteristics that are winning work for NVDB Attorneys. Clients of all kinds want their attorneys to know precisely what drives them. In a commercial setting, this means understanding the markets in which clients operate, being familiar with the clients’ internal policies and procedures, and appreciating their specific commercial objectives.
Regardless of size, every client truly matters and is important to us. With offices in Johannesburg and Cape Town, we operate as a professional practice rather than a corporatised business.
As a result, we have a small firm feel with a big firm reputation. We pride ourselves on providing strategic guidance and solving complex issues related to our client’s commercial interests, legal position and reputation.
