Matt Smit – Partner

Matt completed his L.L.B degree at the University of South Africa while working as an estate agent. He thereafter spent seven years under the mentorship of Harold Smit, a seasoned litigator, where he acquired a thorough understanding of High Court Litigation, especially in the areas of the National Credit Act, The Companies Act and Insolvency Law with a particular emphasis on Business Rescue.

Knowing the industry from the inside-out, he currently advises some of South Africa’s biggest real estate companies on a variety of Property Law matters including Commercial and Residential Property related disputes, Conveyancing transactions, launching of new developments and mediation between purchasers and sellers. He is a life-long learner who continues to study the needs of buyers, sellers, landlords, tenants and agents alike.

His down-to-earth nature and genuine interest in SMEs makes Miranda & Associates an obvious choice and natural fit. Matt is an admitted Attorney of the High Court of South Africa with a passion for Real Estate. He debunks the myth of stiff upper lip lawyers and makes the law approachable and fun.

Matt enjoys working with people and making a difference in their lives, his loyalty and devotion has turned many clients into friends.
