Commercial Law

To operate successfully in our complicated legal system and challenging economic climate, your business needs to keep its legal ducks in a row. You want specialist legal knowledge to avoid costly mistakes and draining legal disputes.

My commercial law services include:

  • Drafting and vetting of lease agreements
  • Drafting, analysing and reviewing contracts

  • Company law compliance
  • General legal advice related to provisions of the Company Act
  • Company structuring
  • Statutory compliance
  • Corporate governance
Labour Law

Labour law

For employers, labour law may seem restrictive and interfering. To make sure you are protected, following the right processes and saving yourself legal headaches, consider engaging a labour law specialist.

My labour law services include:

  • Advising on disciplinary procedures
  • Overseeing the disciplinary process
  • Chairing disciplinary hearings

Financial intermediary services

For business owners, knowing where and how to obtain finance for your business can often seem complicated and stressful.

With my specialist knowledge of the legalities surrounding various loan finance options, I can assist with finding the right financial institution to suit your needs and assist with the application and vetting of the specific loan conditions and terms to help you ensure that you are in the best position to receive the financial assistance that your business needs.


When I left the University of Natal in 2003 with a law degree, I thought I knew a fair amount about the law. But it was working as an attorney and legal advisor that taught me about clients, their businesses and what they need from their legal practitioner.

After nearly 20 years of working in the field: some spent as a practising attorney, many of them as a legal advisor in the risk and compliance department of a national financial institution, I realised clients valued integrity and professionalism in their attorney.

I am not interested in keeping expensive over-priced office lights on or dodgy legal corner-cutting. I am interested in building on my reputation as an honest, smart professional. I use my specialised experience in commercial, corporate and financial law to give legal services that are effective and professional with no bs.

I would like to personally thank you for representing my business and absolutely amazing service I have received from you and your business Kenneth Watt Attorneys. I am more than happy with your services.

He went the extra mile without making any big deal of it. My experience with this legal practice was WAY above average. (Being a very expressive person I would say phenomenal!) I would recommend Ken with certainty to anyone seeking legal advice.

Compassion... integrity... professionalism. Without even meeting Ken face to face I got that "feel good" feeling. He was compassionate about my situation. I could gather throughout our conversations that he has integrity and very high moral values. His professionalism and very sound advice was awesome.
