We have a staff component of 13 people, consisting of 2 directors, 1 associate, 1 professional assistant, 1 general manager, 2 candidate attorneys, 3 legal secretaries and 3 support staff members.
Our main focus is insurance litigation, medical malpractice and delictual claims.
Our dynamic legal practitioners are all well versed in the above topics and, through their years of experience, also possess the requisite skills to provide service beyond the practice’s core focus, such as labour law, insolvency law and contract law.
How the firm started
The company was founded in 2004 by co-founders Sandra Whalley and Barry Van Der Lith. The dynamic duo began their journey together and developed a practice that now practices under the name and style of Whalley & Van Der Lith Incorporated, in consequence of the incorporation of the partnership in 2006.
Since then, the firm has continued to grow.
From a start-up of 3 employees, to a family of 13, and a handful of instructions to a full filing room, the firm has flourished over the past 16 years in the heart of Johannesburg. Despite the firm’s ever-growing formidable reputation, we remain true to our values and ensure our clients are provided with the same level of personal and professional services at competitive prices.
