Firm website:

www.constructionlaw.co.za

About the firm

Tiefenthaler Attorneys Inc was founded in 1995 by Carlos Tiefenthaler who, having qualified as a civil engineer, quantity surveyor and lawyer, had a vision of establishing and developing a world-class legal practice providing specialised legal services to the building and engineering construction industry.

The firm has been fortunate enough to have worked on matters in South Africa, across the African continent and throughout the Middle East on the broadest spectrum of construction projects. In doing so, Tiefenthaler Attorneys Inc has built up an impressive résumé of over 2000 projects in which the firm has successfully resolved a wide array issues for its clients which include some of the world's most prominent construction firms and employers.

Since its inception, the practice has deliberately refrained from becoming involved in any legal work that isn't related to the engineering and construction industry, choosing, instead, to become a true specialist in its chosen field. The result of this focus is that the practice now boasts of being the largest and most experienced legal firm operating exclusively in the field of construction law in South Africa.

Tiefenthaler Attorneys Inc specialises in the practice areas of Construction and Engineering law, and Construction law.
