As a firm, VDT has had a strong focus on being innovative in how we do business. This requires technological efficiency, effective management and a firm that is responsive to the needs of its clients and changes in the legal environment. Our motto, “Innovative solutions through specialised knowledge backed by more than 80 years of experience,” summarises what we as a firm stand for and have stood for.
We have consistently modernised the practice of law, and since becoming a part of the Phatshoane Henney Group of Associated Law Firms, we have amplified this initiative. As part of the PH Group, we also ensure that our firm remains relevant and is able to effectively serve clients in the long-term.
To ensure that VDT is empowered to run its practices to the best industry standards, the Phatshoane Henney Group has implemented encompassing Group standards and best practices which we comply with in respect of the firm, staff and clients. These standards and practices are unique to the Group and geared towards not only a 360-degree measurement of the firm but its continual development and alignment with industry requirements to ensure that member firms stand out as the law firm of choice for clients in their respective territories. This guarantees an innovative approach to problems, as well as innovative solutions.
VDT has had a singular, powerful goal in mind, which is to establish and position ourselves as a new breed of South African law firm – a firm that is innovative and forward-thinking, that puts their clients first and invests in our staff and transformation.
