Proxi Smart Services Pty Ltd v LSSA et al

The matter has been set down for hearing in the High Court: Gauteng.
The Law Society of South Africa filed its answering affidavit on 7 June 2017. Further documentation and responding affidavits by the other parties are below.

Proxi Smart Services (Pty) Limited (Proxi Smart) has proposed a business model to render certain conveyancing-related services which are presently performed by conveyancers – who are regulated by the statutory, provincial law societies.

The view of the Law Society of South Africa (LSSA) and the provincial law societies, is that the proposal by Proxi Smart cannot be supported as the full conveyancing process is regarded as professional work, and should remain so in the interest of the public. The LSSA is opposing the matter.
