People trust you, they always have. You gave a special gift with people. God bless.


There is such a thing as an honest lawyer – Paul Flude.


Paul Flude has been our personal and family lawyer for the past 16 years. He is smart, hard-working, creative and ethical and has always striven to give us the best advice possible. This he does with warmth, humour and flair but his advice has always been sound, long-term and strategically smart. It is a pleasure to recommend Paul to others. He is an asset to any person, family or corporation in need of sound legal advice.


I’m so relieved that my affairs are now in order, thanks to your efforts.


You’re the most efficient person I know! Thanks for all of your help!


I have so appreciated your involvement with the trust, your advice, time and confidence. You helped me make some huge decisions. I am most grateful to have met you. I acknowledge you for being of “generational type” kin who hold the value of good relationships. A rarity in this world.


I have known Paul for 20 years, and I have known him as colleague, lawyer, director, advisor and businessman. Paul has a wealth of experience in a number of roles in a career spanning law, fiduciary services, company director and entrepreneur. He combines a high level of technical expertise in South African and international estate planning, wills, trusts and fiduciary services, together with business acumen and corporate governance as a commercial director and business owner. This means that he has the unique ability to act as a legal advisor and specialist as well as providing macro analysis of corporate affairs, risk and strategy. He operates at more than one level: he is used to interfacing with directors, business owners and CEO’s, providing high-level input to boards and management; but with individual clients, providing focused advice and immediate service. His clients always come first and his response time is world-class. I can highly recommend Paul as a man of many talents, an asset to any organisation, a trusted advisor to any client and extremely competent, ethical, hard-working and knowledgeable. And he has a good sense of humour too!


It has been a pleasure dealing with you. You have a great sense of humour and are kind and helpful too, unlike many professionals. You have definitely dispelled the myth in my mind that all lawyers are bastards.


Thank you very much for your prompt reply. I imagine you must be very successful, as you sound very nice as well as very professional.


You have done the ‘hard yards’ and I suspect your business will only increase over the next decade as reality ‘bites’ in South Africa.
