Our Team


Our firm is not departmentalized per se. Each attorney engages a variety of legal issues and is in turn equipped to handle any matter brought to the firm.

Despite always being busy, the firm consistently finds itself able to cope with the rigours and pressures of the legal profession whilst still producing results.

The firm’s legal team is managed primarily by 3 persons and assisted by candidate attorneys and support staff which is representative of all sectors of South African society and aptly reflects the transformative goals enshrined in our Constitution.

Our management team consists of:

Robert is the founder of the practice initially operating under the name and style “Robert H Kanarek Attorney at Law”. Robert has been in practice, specialising in litigation for little shy of 40 years. Prior to commencing his legal career, Robert completed a Bachelor of Arts and LLB at the University of the Witwatersrand.
