About Us

A company was founded during 1998 and the company’s name changed to JF Jacobs & Partners Incorporated in 2000 and has been practicing under the name of Jacobs & Partners until 2014 when it was changed to BGR Jacobs Bester Griessel Incorporated.

On 1 December 2000 the practice of Jacobs & Partners and Hermias van Zyl (trading as Theron du Plessis Worcester) merged and Hermias now practices in association with Jacobs & Partners. Due to the merger, the offices at 60 Russell Street became too small and we were looking to move to larger offices.

The current directors, Johan Jacobs and Gert Griessel have been managing the firm since 1 July 2017 under the name BGR Jacobs Griessel Incorporated.

Worcester is situated in the Breede River Valley on the N1 between Cape Town and Johannesburg, some 100 km from Cape Town, and the famous Route 62 between Wolseley and Robertson. The town is surrounded by Brandwacht, Overhex and Langeberg Mountains with the Hex and Breede River passing nearby the town.
