DWDP Law (Pty) Ltd was birthed out of the law firm formerly known as De Wet Du Plessis Attorneys. The partners of De Wet Du Plessis, Matthew de Wet and Annerine de Plessis strategically split the business into two, one comprising mainly litigation services and the other corporate and commercial services.
Annerine continues with the legal practice under the registered law firm currently known as ADP Attorneys while Matthew de Wet founded DWDP Law (Pty) Ltd through which all the corporate and commercial work will be conducted.
While DWDP Law (Pty) Ltd is not required to be a registered law firm, it comprises solely of qualified and admitted attorneys who are experienced in corporate and commercial matters having cut their teeth in commercial law firms.
