Law Practised Differently

We’re a corporate law firm, but we practise law differently because we believe that law should be accessible, empowering and helpful. The law should:

  • enable organisations to grow,
  • create a better society,
  • protect people from harm, and more

Thank you and your team for an excellent POPI session. To add weight to my words, I was initially sceptical of this investment in time and money. However, as a consequence of our engagement with Michalsons, Gmaven is in a far stronger position. We’re now empowered with valuable insights, a firm grasp of the principles and confidence in the domain. We appreciate your professionalism, your passion shines through, and Michalsons are to be commended on a great job.
