Our History

Coenraad Petrus Bezuidenhout, father of Johan Bezuidenhout, moved to Tulbagh early in 1970. He was a teacher at that stage, but always had a passion for law. Whilst being a teacher, he started studying to qualify as an attorney. He did subsequently qualify as an attorney and opened his own practice during 1976, after finishing his apprenticeship in Cape Town. The office was situated at 58 Van der Stel Street, Tulbagh, and known as C P Bezuidenhout Attorney.

On 13 December 1990 he obtained his doctorate in law at the University of Stellenbosch. The subject of his thesis was the legal aspects of usufruct in the South African Law (“Sakeregtelike aspekte van vruggebruik in die Suid-Afrikaanse regstelsel”).


This was also the year in which name of the practice changed to Dr. C.P. Bezuidenhout Attorney.

During 2002 Dr. Bezuidenhout bought the law practice of another attorney in Tulbagh, and moved to the new premises at 13 Van der Stel Street, Tulbagh. Johan Bezuidenhout joined his father and they worked together for a period of 5 years.

During 2007 Dr. Bezuidenhout retired and Johan Bezuidenhout carried on with the practice, from the same premises, but under his own name and stead. To this day Dr. Bezuidenhout is involved with the practice as legal consultant.
