Founding partner and over 20 years’ experience in the practice of law

George founded the law firm Honey Attorney’s the year after he was admitted as an attorney. 26 years later that firm, now known as BDP Attorney’s, has grown into one of the top legal practices in Cape Town with a staff comprising 100 of the brightest legal minds in South Africa.

George’s nearly three decades of experience has earned him a formidable reputation in each of the five areas he specialises in, namely; Business Rescue, Commercial law, Family Law, General Litigation and Estate Planning.

Backed by a team that thrives on attention to detail and out-of-the-box legal strategy, George’s clients find him empathetic and easy to talk to. This is in stark contrast to his courtroom opponents who seek in vain to find a crack in the team’s watertight contracts, or who come face-to-face with George in a courtroom battle. George De Beer is the experienced attorney you want in your corner whether you’re planning a new venture, or when that venture finds itself in troubled waters
