Your life long legal partner

McKenzie van der Merwe & Willemse is a highly professional law firm in Kempton Park that was incorporated in February 2001, when Aletta van der Merwe and Tewie Willemse joined forces.

Our speciality is conveyancing, the administration of estates, the preparation of various agreements including commercial agreements, as well as civil litigation.

We are on the bond panels of First National Bank, Standard Bank and Nedbank, and have the necessary sophisticated software to administer bond registrations for these institutions. This enables us to keep our clients informed of progress electronically via sms and email.

We strive to serve the community of Kempton Park and surrounding areas with fast, efficient and personal service. We are trustworthy and believe that we have built a reputation as a law firm who adds real value at fair and reasonable prices.
