Hugh Eiser has been admitted as an attorney since 1972. His expertise ranges over a wide area in the commercial law and commercial litigation fields, including:

- Negotiating and drafting of merger and acquisition, and related agreements, involving nine and ten figure amounts. He is able to understand simple and complex financial statements and, therefore, to ascertain a company’s real as opposed to its represented financial position.

- Experience in competition law, including both successful preparation and filing of merger documents with the Competition Commission, and preparation of documents and appearances in complaint proceedings before the Competition Tribunal.

- Preparation of successful application to the Securities Regulation Panel for exemption from the SRP Code.

- Experience in mining mergers and acquisitions, including the Minerals and Petroleum Resources Development Act.

- Expertise in short terms insurance, having acted for the insurance industry for many years. The malicious damage extension in the Multi Mark policy was drafted by him.

- Large High Court commercial litigation

- High Court and SCA appearances

Hugh holds three degrees including a Masters, and one post graduate diploma, all of which were obtained from the University of the Witwatersrand. He is a registered tax adviser. In addition to the usual legal and pre legal qualifications, Hugh Eiser has the rare additional qualifications of H Dip Tax Law and an MBA.

The firm is narrowly focused on commercial law, but is broadly based in this field.
