Correspondent Services

We have developed a dedicated correspondent department in order to fill what we believe is a gap in the market for efficient, reliable and cost-effective correspondent services.

As an instructing attorney your main concern is to ensure that court processes and notices are served and filed on time and as quickly as possible.

In order to ensure that we deliver on our promise of exceptional service and quick turnaround time, we have structured our correspondent department in such a way that documents which we receive are processed on the day of receipt thereof.

In rendering our services, we offer the following assurances:

  • Pleadings, notices and correspondence received will be forwarded to you within 24 hours of receiving same
  • Telephone calls will be returned on the same day
  • We will be on call after hours for launching and opposing urgent applications, liaising with the Registrar and Counsel, as well as arranging court dates
  • We will advise and guide you in respect of the practice directives of our division.

We have developed and nurtured very good relations with the various court personnel, as well as the various sheriffs. This ensures that pleadings and notices are dealt with timeously.

In order to aid in the timeous processing of documents and to ensure that documents are issued, served and filed in the quickest time possible, we employ a dedicated messenger to deliver and collect documents to and from the various courts, sheriffs and attorneys.

We are ideally situated within just 30 meters from the High Court and a few kilometers from the main Magistrates’ Court (New Law Courts) in Port Elizabeth.

Port Elizabeth consists of the following courts, all of which we can assist with the processing of documents:

  • High Court, Port Elizabeth
  • Magistrates Court, New Law Courts (district and regional), Port Elizabeth
  • Magistrates Court, Motherwell, Port Elizabeth
  • Magistrates Court, New Brighton, Port Elizabeth

We currently service a number of law firms in South Africa on an ongoing basis, which include firms from Cape Town, Pretoria, Johannesburg, Durban, Pietermaritzburg, Richards Bay and other areas in and around the Eastern Cape.
