Brits Dreyer has its roots in the erstwhile renowned firm Silberbauers Inc., which had been conducting business in Bellville since 1957. Gerhard Brits served his articles with Silberbauers Inc. and later became a partner. When Silberbauers Inc. closed its doors in 1999, following a merger with attorneys Cliffe Dekker of Johannesburg, Gerhard Brits, the managing partner of the Bellville office, requested the opportunity to retain the office and the practice in order to address the needs of existing clients.
Therefore, from 1999 to 2004 the office continued to practice under the name Silberbauers-Brits. In 2005, the name of the practice was changed to Brits Dreyer Inc.
To provide innovative, efficient and affordable legal service and to retain personal contact with our clients, thereby adding value to their lives and businesses.
