OAK Law was founded and established on 1 September 2013 when Owen Kriek relinquished his partnership with another specialist corporate and commercial law practice, in order to pursue his dream of establishing his own niche corporate and commercial law firm.
OAK Law was founded and established under a strict restraint of trade, and had one client and one attorney upon opening its doors. The firm however quickly established itself as a reputable, efficient and effective legal services provider and today OAK Law’s client base and staff compliment is diverse, representative and growing progressively.
