Experts in Labour Law
Snyman Attorneys was originally established in January 1994 by its three founding partners Snyman, Van de Heever and Heyns, with the purpose of providing legal services based solely on labour related concerns from the outset.
In 1995, a significant shift in employment law saw the newly rooted Snyman Attorneys become actively involved in the formation of LabourNet, a key provider of labour management solutions. From this association, Snyman Attorneys formed a close partnership with LabourNet in which Snyman Attorneys now acts as the labour litigation service provider to LabourNet’s industrial relations support department.
Since its inception, Snyman Attorneys has become widely recognised in the industry with a presence in all major labour courts nationwide, providing legal services to over 4000 clients through its affiliation with LabourNet as well as a broad spectrum of corporate and selected individual clients. Snyman Attorneys have also been contracted to consult on and attend to several collective labour law issues and disputes on behalf of a number of industry organisations corporates.
Snyman Attorneys currently conducts in excess of 1000 arbitrations in the CCMA and bargaining councils, and around 400 labour court cases every year. To date, the firm has been involved in hundreds of reported cases, setting the precedent for a diverse range of future cases that will appear in the labour court. With volume and specialisation in focused discipline comes familiarity, and it is this fundamental attribute that gives Snyman Attorneys a distinct advantage in the industry.
The highly skilled complement of partners and associates at Snyman Attorney are constantly on the leading edge of developments in the industry and strives to uphold the firm’s reputation as the first choice expert. An inherent awareness of best practice and principles and a constant capacity for excellence allows each and every member of the team to enter the court with confidence, and has consequently entrenched Snyman Attorneys as a respected practice within the labour court, CCMA and bargaining councils
