  • Negotiation and representation in disputes arising out of the Consumer Protection Act (for the retailer and the consumer).
  • Disputes arising out of the National Credit Act.

    • Sale of share agreements.
  • Alternative Dispute Resolution:

    Although we understand and appreciate that an aggressive litigation strategy is on many occasions necessary and appropriate, we remain firm in our belief, that depending on the nature and circumstances of each case, a conciliatory approach can at times better serve the clients’ interests. Often, disputes can be somewhat predictable and therefore possibly avoidable. THERON AND MAYBERY ATTORNEYS therefore strives to apply the correct litigation strategies from the outset, so as to ensure the best possible and cost effective outcome for our clients.

  • Debt recovery / Collections:

    In our experience in recovering all types of debts for a wide range of clients, we have discovered that certain recurring issues which are shared by many of our clients (from a Creditors perspective), namely that:

    • Valuable time and resources are wasted by the client’s key staff members in collecting monies owing to them.
    • Bad debt restricts the company’s cash flow.
    • There is a reluctance to discuss debts with customers as this often places strain on the customer relationships and the continuation thereof beyond payment of the accounts.
    • Debt collection or recovery is vital in all businesses.

    Our debt collection services include both litigious and non-litigious collections

    Non Litigious Processes

    • We deal with the debtors directly and handle the difficult conversations, which tend to place strain on professional/customer relationships between creditors and their customers.
    • We apply the appropriate pressure on the debtor in order to obtain prompt payment.
    • We maintain constant and personal contact through telephonic communications, which has proven to be far more effective than dispatching statements.
    • We offer payment plans and options to speed up recovery of the outstanding debt (subject to the clients (creditors) approval).
    • We offer client support to the client’s credit team through regular updates, and advice (where required), which in turn permits the clients records to be maintained and updated.
    • Our dealings are secure and completely confidential protecting the integrity of both the client and their customers (as governed by the rules of ethics of the legal profession).

    Litigious Processes

    • We are experienced litigators, meaning that in the event of non-payment, notwithstanding attempts to obtain payment in a non-litigious manner, we attend to the issuing of summons and the process which follows therefrom, including:
      • Formal letters of demand.
      • Institution of the applicable summons (action) proceedings, and representation in the event of the action being defended.
      • Summary judgment applications.
      • Applications for default judgment in the event of the action not being defended.
      • Execution proceedings to recover monies in terms of judgments obtained.
      • Representation in Section 65 Proceedings (financial enquiries to obtain Court ordered repayment terms after judgment).
