Tau Phalane Inc Attorneys

"Persistence and hard work reaps rewards"


PRACTISING as an attorney for some 26 years, Pretoria’s Tau Phalane signed up in March 2017 as a partner in the fast-growing property company that Owen Dormehl launched under his own moniker in 2009.

The partnership with Phalane came about, Dormehl says, because both are passionate about empowerment. Phalane points that he and Owen work well as a team because they understand each other and are both optimistic about the property market’s future in this country.

Phalane was born in Pretoria, the third of eight children. He had always wanted to have his own business, so pursued a B Com degree at Rhodes and Venda universities, going on to attain his law degree from the Pietermaritzburg campus of the University of Kwazulu-Natal.

He opened Tau Phalane Inc Attorneys in Pretoria in 1992, soon after graduating, and is its executive director, employing 50 people in offices in Pretoria and Nelspruit.

Phalane is also in the process of forming another partnership – he recently connected with Pretoria conveyancer Riaan Klopper to form Phalane and Klopper Inc, trading as PK Attorneys, a partnership specialising in property law and real estate.

Away from work, Phalane loves nothing more than to garden, travel and spend time with his wife, four children – girls aged 18 and 16; boys aged 6 and 8 – and other members of his large family, many of whom also live in Pretoria.

He says his motto in life is “Persistence and hard work reaps rewards”. And if he were to utter just one sentence as a recommendation for people to choose the Dormehl Phalane Property Group it would be, “We deliver!”.
