The Law Desk of Fawzia Khan & Associates was established in December 1990. Fawzia Khan runs a highly successful boutique law firm specializing in Divorces, (incl. Parenting Plans, Financial advice on Lump Sum Capital Awards, Spousal Maintenance & Pension Funds), Commercial & Business Law, drafting various contracts for businesses, property transfers, and conveyancing, Ante-Nuptial Contracts, Trusts, Wills & Estates. Our aim is to provide a solution-focused approach to you. We strive to explore all options available to our clients with a view to obtaining a resolution of the matter as quickly as cost-effectively as possible.
We are empathetic to our client's needs and understand how overwhelming a legal problem may appear to be. We ensure that you get a good understanding of your legal position by identifying the strengths and weaknesses you may have in your case. Fawzia Khan has been in practice in excess of 30 years. She has also been selected to participate in the judicial skills program to enable her to take up an appointment on the bench as a judge. Over the years of practice, Fawzia Khan has written a number of articles on a wide range of topics on various aspects of the law. Whilst a matter which is litigated would require a robust approach with colleagues, the other alternatives to dispute resolutions are also considered with the client. Mediation, negotiation, and arbitration can also offer a client a viable and cost-effective resolution to a dispute. Fawzia trained as a mediator in February 2011 and provides mediation services on almost any dispute, with divorce mediation being her main area of focus. With her special training as a Mediator, she can facilitate discussions between the couple with a view to getting a Memorandum of Understanding signed. Mediation is now compulsory in terms of the Children's Act and is also strongly recommended to be used by a couple who are going through a divorce as it saves legal costs and has tremendous benefits in restoring broken relationships between members of the family caught in the crossfire of the divorce.
Since March 2020, the new Rule 41A on mediation has kicked in, where actions brought out of the High Court have to be referred to mediation. This means any dispute going to the High Court, requires the parties to indicate whether the dispute has been referred to mediation. At The Law Desk of Fawzia Khan and Associates, whether you want us to institute an action or defend a matter on your behalf, or to draft a contract or give legal advice on a matter of concern to you, we've got your back.
