Anneke Whelan Attorneys is headed up by Anneke Whelan, a senior attorney assisted by Emma van der Merwe, a candidate attorney, and a paralegal, Chantal Harris. We are a small team which is geared to deliver long term solutions to business challenges for the clients we serve.
We believe that it is important that the appropriate resources - employees or technology - and expertise are engaged to produce results that achieve long term solutions to our clients’ challenges. Such solutions must be efficient, risk-appropriate, and cost-effective. They must add value to you, the client. We firmly believe that service providers that can consistently deliver legal services this way - whether employing internal resources or collaborating with others - will be dominant players.

The legal profession, as we know it, must undergo broad, deep and enduring changes. We have turned a management tool – the timesheet – into a billing instrument that is often used in a “scorched earth” fashion. The legal profession is characterised by conformity, adherence to precedent, leverage, and preservation of the status quo. Most firms are undifferentiated, offering the same practice capability at similar prices.
This is what sets us apart.
As is required by law, we endeavour to provide our clients with an estimate of the costs associated with the provision of work and bill in accordance with the agreement reached. There are no surprises when our client receives an invoice from us. Not only will we be able to differentiate our business, but our pricing structure is more palatable to our clients who understandably demand more choice, transparency, competition, price predictability, and direct access to the service provider.
