The following areas of law are where we focus our attention and growth, namely company law, data privacy, business contracts, information technology law, and restraints of trade.

Boogaard Attorneys is proud to be associated and engaged with South African businesses which are supporting economic growth, entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation. It is our preference where possible to assist clients to have sound compliance and contractual frameworks in place for sake of good governance and to avoid unnecessary litigation and disputes. In this way, a client's valuable resources can be directed to growth. However, in the instance of litigation or dispute resolution being necessary, we have established sound relationships with reputable counsel at varying degrees of seniority to assist in pursuing and resolving matters in the necessary forums.

We can assist with conveyancing instructions as well as patent and other IP law services via long standing relationships we have established with two top Johannesburg law firms specialising in these fields of law.

We service our clients throughout South Africa remotely. Practising from Block B, Infinity Business Park, Corner William Nicol Drive and Pieter Wenning Road, Fourways, we are easily accessible to clients in Johannesburg North including Fourways, Bryanston, Dainfern, Morningside, Midrand, Rivonia and Sandton.
