ICTS Legal Services (Pty) Ltd
The employee benefits industry is a highly technical environment, often leaving service providers and trustees unsure, or even unaware, of all consequences of their actions. ICTS Legal Services is able to provide relevant and meaningful legal expertise to ensure that you have considered relevant law, case precedent and contractual obligations in your decisions..
South Africa is similar to the rest of the world as far as the latest legal trends go, specifically that legal services do not always need to be, and should not always be, provided either totally in-house or by a law firm. ICTS Legal Services is not a law firm nor a ‘legal practitioner’ which means that we don’t have the expensive overheads associated with these firms.
