Vaughan Ulyate & Associates is a medium sized firm of attorneys, each with his or her special area of expertise. Certain of our attorneys are qualified as Notaries and Conveyancers.

The firm is situated in the Tyger Waterfront, Bellville, in the Northern Suburbs of Cape Town. Our offices are close to Tygervalley shopping centre, and are easily accessible from the N1 highway and from our neighbouring areas such as Welgemoed and Durbanville. Our clients are drawn largely from the whole of Cape Town and surrounds, from Noordhoek in the South to Springbok in the North, and also from as far as Oudtshoorn and Plettenberg Bay in the eastern areas of the Western Cape. We also receive instructions from clients in other parts of South Africa, particularly in Gauteng. We find that distance between the client and the attorneys is no longer a factor, given the huge technological progress made in communication via the world wide web and skype.

We provide an extensive range of legal services, concentrating on property law (conveyancing), general litigation and commercial law, as well as being proficient in other areas of law such as matrimonial and family law, insolvency law, wills, estate planning and trusts, as well as notarial services and contracts.

The firm was founded on 1 April 1994 by Vaughan Ulyate in the heart of Cape Town with one secretary. As the number of clients grew, it became important to appoint more attorneys in the firm. All of our attorneys have LLB degrees from the major universities in South Africa, and our young and dynamic team strives for service excellence.

We are proud of our large number of loyal clients, with whom we have developed excellent working relationships and who continue to instruct us in all fields of law. We have found that word of mouth and referrals by clients is the best way to market the firm, and we strive to give the best possible service to each client, no matter what the nature or extent of the matter is.

Each attorney takes immense pride in his or her work, and continues to keep abreast of changes in the law to enable us to advise our clients properly and efficiently on the problems and matters that they face. We give personal attention to our clients and their needs, as we understand that each person is an individual with his or her own problems, needs and/or requirements.
