AREAS OF EXPERTISE:
Litigation & Protection
We fight to ensure you are compensated for the harm you are subjected to and that your rights are protected.
At LHL we represent whistleblowers for the same reasons that courageous women and men come forward to expose wrongdoing, injustice, or fraud. We believe in turning the tide on corruption and ensuring that there is accountability, justice, and fairness, whether in the public or private sector.
LHL’s attorneys have experience working in San Francisco, California, and often work with specialist legal consultants from the United States of America to ensure that we assemble the sharpest and most effective legal task-force.
Coupled with LHL’s pedigree and experience, we work with some of South Africa’s most respected clinical psychologists to ensure that you are able to focus on yourself and your mental state while we take on your matter.
After working with UC Berkeley’s Business in Society Institute and the Women in Business Institute, LHL has pioneered certain ground-breaking litigation strategies that champion the rights of those who speak out.
If you are someone who has been victimised because you spoke out against injustice, fraud or corruption speak to us. From our first free conversation, we’ll listen to your story. If we work together, our team of whistleblower experts will be at your side with support and legal guidance at every turn – through government investigations, legal filings, settlement, or litigation if necessary. All along the way, we’ll help you understand what to expect and the best legal avenues for you and your case.
