The Anthony Harper Difference


Many hats

Our lawyers do not wear multiple hats. They are true specialists in their practice areas. Their precision, attention to detail and clarity allows them to quickly analyse complex problems and get to the heart of the issue.

Law at the speed of life

Responsive. Agile. Innovative. We are always thinking. Modern life never stops, never slows down and we understand that our clients need up to the minute, pertinent and constructive advice.


A smile suits most people

We like working here. It shows. We won 2014, 2015 and 2016 Employer of Choice for good reason. We come to work with a smile and this enthusiasm is reflected in the service we provide to our clients.


We join the dots

We're connected. Internally, our teams work seamlessly together to provide a depth of understanding to complex transactions. Externally, we are connected to a vast array of professional advisors, business partners and ALFA International's global network.


Fully immersed

We believe there is a real difference in what we offer. It is not just the legal work. We are interested in your business and the passion that drives you to succeed. We are not content to sit in the shallows; we go in deep, and get involved.
