About

Meumann White was opened in January 1970 by Denis Meumann and Rob White. From its inception the firm positioned itself as a property law practice specializing in all aspects of property. As a result of the commitment and dedication of all members of our team, the firm has seen continuous growth and now has offices situated in Amanzimtoti, Berea, Bluff, Hillcrest and Umhlanga. We have also seen growth in other spheres of law, namely the commercial, litigation, family law and estate departments.

    The Meumann White philosophy can best be summarized as follows:
  1. We value the fundamental role played by our employees and provide an atmosphere of both mutual respect and lively conviviality.
  2. Our integrity and honesty is the cornerstone of our firm.
  3. We understand the needs of our clients and respond by supplying them with remarkable service in a locality that is close and accessible to them.
  4. We understand that the property market is not 9 - 5 and we are therefore available to support our clients 24/7.
  5. Through cutting edge technology we supply services that are both modern and relevant.
  6. We understand that our firm’s continued success relies on us being ahead in the fast-paced world in which we live and we therefore ensure that we are continually adapting to changes both in the law as well as in technology.
