About Us


Modise Matlou Thipe Attorneys is the result of a merger between the law practices of Elton De Bruin Incorporated and Matlou Thipe Attorneys in May 2017. Elton De Bruin Incorporated (www.edbinc.co.za) was a boutique law firm specializing in corporate and commercial law since its inception in April 2012. Matlou Thipe Attorneys (www.matlouthipe.co.za) was a premier business law firm specializing in a wide range of legal fields involving commerce, sports, regulatory and procurement – the firm was established in 2015. Due to the overwhelming synergies discovered during a collaboration project between the two (2) firms, it was inevitable that the two firms would ultimately decide to combine their skills and resources with the view of consolidating their value proposition to the market.
