About Robyn Hey Attorneys

Knowing the law and applying the law to a business’s needs are two very different things. As a business, you don’t need someone to tell you what abstract concepts exist in relation to a legal problem – you want to know what the best course of action is to grow your business, solve your problem or lead your team in a way that gives your business the competitive edge.

At Robyn Hey Attorneys, we are more than just lawyers, we are business owners, trainers, organisation leaders, and problem solvers. If you are looking for someone to perform a legal audit on your business, help you structure your next deal, provide employment law solutions or help you resolve your legal disputes, then you are looking for Robyn Hey Attorneys.

With our background in advising owners of distressed businesses, we know exactly how bad things can get for businesses in South Africa. Robyn Hey has over 17 years experience as an attorney and 11 years as a business owner. With Robyn at the helm, we as a team know exactly what it takes to run a successful business.

We understand the business life cycle. We understand that even the most established companies started with an idea and that protecting that idea and the legacy built up around it is the key for most private companies.



As director of the firm, Robyn is responsible for ensuring the strategic direction of the firm and instilling the culture of the firm into the team. Robyn started her career at what is now ENSAfrica in the insolvency, business rescue and debt recovery team. Her experience in a big firm environment trained her in the rigours of practice and she witnessed first-hand how even the largest of companies could fail if the right internal controls, financial management, and strategic leadership were not in place.

Robyn is committed to ensuring that her clients are forewarned and forearmed in business. An advocate of training and practical legal solutions, Robyn walks alongside clients to ensure that they are aware of the requirements and risks of doing business. Her clients see her as more than an attorney but as part of the leadership team of their business and trust her to provide advice that advances their business.


Before entering legal practice as an attorney, Lee spent 23 years in managing people and training management and teams.

Lee understands people and the effect of the rigorous requirements of the business on management, individuals and teams which makes him well placed to give practical employment law advice that empowers businesses to effectively manage their teams and deal decisively with any poor performance, misconduct or other employment challenges.
