Eastern Cape property legal giant Greyvensteins Inc, which celebrated its “golden” 50th practicing anniversary in 2010, has now taken on the City of Gold – with an office in Fourways, Gauteng.
Founded in Port Elizabeth in 1960, the firm has established itself along the Cape Coast from its offices in Port Elizabeth and Cape Town. Today it is in the vanguard of handling the region’s property legal matters for all types of residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural erven or established properties, from conveyancing to an excellent record of successful court resolutions in court actions for clients.
Heading up the office at Nicol Grove Office Park, Designs Quarter, is attorney Arno van Deventer who has practiced at Greyvensteins Cape Town office since graduating with an LLB from the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University in 2006.
“The firm’s stability and reputation has been well established. Its future lies with maintaining its core values of expertise and service with a keen eye on adapting to the changing demands of the property market of the future.
“This move into Gauteng is a part of that future to keep the firm relevant and maintain its sustainability that has already seen it dominate in the Cape Province for the past 54 years,” says van Deventer.
In the past four years Greyvensteins has been recognised as one of the Deeds Office’s top performers in the Cape Province.
It has won numerous awards since its inception and is an associate of the exclusive Phashoane Henney Group, South Africa’s largest association of independent law firms.
