Slide "Claudius and his team were instrumental and assisting us with the sale of our business. We were extremely happy with the level of professionalism and knowledge they displayed on a daily basis.

The deal was complex and lingered on for quite some time. We were fortunate to have a team take care of our needs as strong as Du Plooy Law at a very reasonable cost. If you are looking for legal counsel for any business requirement, Claudius and his staff will go above and beyond every time.

I will continue to use Du Plooy Law for all of our business needs for years to come!”
- Dean Petrillo
Slide - Jordan Ramey "Claudius and his staff have been exceptionally helpful as we add structure and grow our existing beverage agri-processing business. We wouldn't be where we are today without his diligent assistance and exceptional attention to detail.

Highly recommended if you're looking for experienced legal counsel that is well versed in business law both locally and internationally. I have worked with Claudius on a variety of business projects.

I feel our dollars are spent well, the charges fair, and I look forward to our continued business successes."
Slide - Bob Fox I was very satisfied with the legal services provided for me by the Du Plooy Law firm here in Calgary.

Work that Du Plooy did for me involved personal estate planning, on which I found them to be very knowledgeable and competent. They were great listeners in quickly understanding and assessing a complicated personal situation. Their counsel showed attention to detail including identifying, educating and advising me concerning related legal issues; as well as fast follow-up in preparing and completing the related documents.

I believe I received good value for my money, and certainly intend to use their services again in the future for both personal and business needs.
Slide - Nigel Werenka "The team at Du Plooy Law have been fantastic to deal with. We have run our corporate and personal legal handlings through Mr. Du Plooy and his professional team.

They are always available with the support you require to take your business to the next level or to discuss and adjust contract details when opportunities arise."

He is experienced, efficient and in turn has saved me a great deal of headaches over the years. I highly recommend."
Slide - LaVerne Woroschuk "I'd like to give a big shout-out to Claudius and his team! They helped me to set-up my start-up business, including incorporations, unanimous shareholder agreement, and all my website terms of service, privacy policy and rules and regulations.

The team at Du Plooy Law went over and above to answer every one of my questions (there were many!), they had patience with my 'particular-ness' and always had suggestions but didn't push anything on me. Further, they were really organized with all the paperwork for my company incorporations which made setting-up business bank accounts much easier; I got complimented at the bank on the thoroughness of the paperwork!

I absolutely recommend Du Plooy Law and will be a repeat customer for any legal needs down the road.”
Slide - Mark Czechowsky "I have been working with Claudius on a number of different items on a mix of different businesses that we've required help with over the last few months, and I've been extremely impressed with the level of business knowledge while delivering a quick turn around.

I certainly recommend him to other business owners.”
