No company or firm should function without a Legal or a Human Resource Department.

It is in fact a huge risk in a South African environment where a heavy compliance burden casts a long shadow over businesses, and more especially in the metals and engineering sector.

Practically, however, full-time HR and Legal departments are expensive, and in an industry where 65% of businesses are small – employing less than 30 people; it is an expense that very few can afford.

SEIFSA presents its retainer “On-Demand” service, which puts skilled professionals within easy and in-expensive reach. For Business-owners, OnDemand is your peace-of-mind.

SEIFSA Legal OnDemand

The legal profession swears by the maxim, “verba volant, scripta manent” which means spoken words fly away, written words remain!

Drafting is one of the most intellectually demanding of all lawyering skills. It requires a knowledge of the law, the ability to deal with abstract concepts, investigative instincts, an extraordinary degree of prescience, and organizational skills.

A well-drafted document is equivalent to a strong argument and can make or break a case! A legal document, whether it is a contract, written statement or an affidavit, serves two purposes- informing and engaging both the client and the court about the legal issue.

Policies are to a company what rules are to the players of a game. They are the framework and constraints within which everyone can strive for individual and collective success.
