Legal&Tax was started in 1998 with the main aim of providing people with legal and tax assistance that was both affordable and professional. Since then there have been many moments where we have come together to help make a real difference in people’s lives, something this company always strives to achieve and something I’m extremely proud of.  

In the not too distant future, I would like to see our service become even more relevant, where people don’t just see us as their legal or tax advisor, but also as their companion, helping them through the ups and downs of life’s journey.

This company’s future is bright because of its people. We don’t just hire the most qualified individuals; we look for great minds, with great attitudes – when great attitudes come together, great things happen.

We need to continue being ourselves. I have never been competitor centric. All I want is my team of great people to fulfil their potential in being the very best they can be. If we achieve our internal goals and continuously be true companions to our customers, especially in life’s complexities, competition becomes irrelevant.   

It is important that we always care. By caring, we focus on each other’s needs and provide quality service we all deserve.

Your companion

Sindi's Story
"I was shocked to find out that, after maternity leave, I would no longer be needed at the firm I worked at. Panicked, I immediately contacted my Legal&Tax lawyer."

"I was shocked to find out that, after maternity leave, I would no longer be needed at the firm I worked at. Panicked, I immediately contacted my Legal&Tax lawyer, who sent a letter to my boss telling him that this constituted unfair dismissal and that, should I not be reinstated, he would contact the CCMA. With Legal&Tax’s help, I was able to get my job back."
