Keith Bothongo

Kieth Bothongo (or 'Mr B' as we all know him) is in charge of the firm's international growth. Mr B was recently awarded The SAIBPP Lifetime Achievement Award 2018 for his success in the property market. This success is reflected on the employees at the firm who are always reminded that nothing is impossible.

The firm's Senior Partner and CEO come from an unprivileged background. Mr Qamar-ur Rehman grew up on the farms of Pakistan, whilst Mr Keith Bothongo grew up in a small hut in South Africa. Neither one let this limit their their goals and aspirations, and now their success is one of great perseverance and growth.

Together they have built Deo Volente into the strong law firm it is today and are proud of the values it stands for. The firm is a strong believer in giving back to the community with the confidence that clients will always return due to the warm yet professional service they receive by us.

The firm's ethos of being dedicated to delivering unmatched customer service and client care is indicative of the fact that Mr Qamar-ur Rehman-the firm's senior partner and founder-essentially built Deo Volente Solicitors upon the foundations of trust and reputation, as opposed to the other conventional means of enticing clients. Hence Deo Volente Solicitors manages to deliver a bespoke service to fulfill every client's needs across various areas of law; from immigration, family, crime, property, civil litigation, international and islamic law. 

With the ethos of giving back to the community and aiming to always deliver a high-level of client care, Deo volente Solicitors truly believes that it is unique to other law firms within the industry. Every member of staff within the firm has internalised the culture of not allowing cooperate formalities to compromise the quality of legal services or deliverance of customer care.
