Cox Yeats Attorneys is proud to announce the expansion of its national footprint through the opening of a new office in Cape Town. Cox Yeats is a leading commercial law firm, offering a full range of legal services with a national and international focus. The firm’s head office is based in Umhlanga, Durban and its Johannesburg office was established in Sandton in 2020.
“We are delighted that the firm has achieved its strategy of having a presence in the country’s three major economic hubs,” said Andrew Clark, Cox Yeats’ Managing Partner, “and we are confident that our Cape Town office will match our successes in Durban and Johannesburg as we strive to ensure that Cox Yeats remains the law firm of choice in South Africa.”
Freddie Terblanche will be joining Cox Yeats as a partner in the Cape Town office. Terblanche, a regarded litigation attorney with more than 15 years’ experience, focuses primarily on general litigation, alternate dispute resolution, insolvency, business rescue and insurance law. During his career he has advised various multinational, listed, and blue-chip companies, as well as high net worth individuals, in complex and large-scale matters.
“I am excited to join Cox Yeats and to assist the firm with its expansion in Cape Town,” commented Terblanche, “this will present new opportunities for both existing and future clients in Cape Town and I look forward to continuing the firm’s legacy of effective service delivery.”
Since its establishment in 1964, Cox Yeats has set benchmarks through the giving of innovative and practical advice and the delivery of the highest standard of legal services to its clients – who are based nationally and internationally. The firm has consistently been rated among the top law firms in the country, having been recognised by PMR.africa as the top medium sized law firm in South Africa for the last four years running and in 2022 fourteen Cox Yeats partners were listed in the 13th Edition of Best Lawyers® in South Africa.
