Law

Mota Africa provides the full spectrum of legal services across a diverse range of industries. Our lawyers are specialists in their respective fields and have years of experience advising some of the biggest companies on the African continent.

Our clients are as diverse as the African continent – ranging from publicly listed multi-nationals, to private (closely-held) companies and individuals.

Corporate & Commercial Law

Our lawyers provide a full-service corporate and commercial law offering to individuals and businesses across various sectors.

 

Employment & Labour Law

The South African employment environment is highly regulated and employer/employee relations are often put under pressure.  Complying with employment legislation can be particularly challenging without reliable legal advice. It is therefore essential that businesses have access to the legal expertise required to navigate this complex terrain.

Litigation & Dispute Resolution

Resolving business disputes through court is a very stressful, costly and time-consuming affair. Our litigation team works to both prevent and resolve disputes by combining our in-depth knowledge and experience gained from our years of litigation conducted on behalf of our clients.

 

Our experience in litigation and dispute resolution is as extensive as it is wide-ranging. We represent clients in a wide range of matters from relatively low-value matters in Magistrates Courts to complex high-value matters in the Supreme Court of Appeal.  Our experience also includes negotiation, mediation and arbitration.

Administrative & Constitutional Law

Administrative and constitutional law are the foundational pillars of any  system. This area of law has a direct bearing on the ability of both individual and corporate citizens of any country to enjoy their legal rights and to access justice.

Data Privacy

Our team of data privacy experts advises on all aspects of data privacy, including data protection, data privacy, private data leaks, and private data management.

Forensics

Financial crimes, particularly fraud and corruption are serious threats to all businesses. Mota Africa offers an array of forensic services which assist in the investigation, detection and prevention of financial crimes.

Antitrust & Competition Law

Non-compliance with competition laws can have a devastating effect on a business because it may attract significant (even exorbitant) fines from competition authorities.

Tax

Mota Attorneys boasts a multi-disciplinary team of experienced tax practitioners who range from attorneys to chartered accountants. We regularly advise clients on complex tax matters including mergers and acquisitions, cross-border transactions, tax aspects of intellectual property disposals and licensing, and multi-jurisdictional tax structuring.

We are also regularly instructed to advise on various types of disputes with tax authorities, negotiate settlements with tax authorities and represent clients in tax disputes.
