Our Story

Chosen for our guidance and hands-on expertise, we have worked with hundreds of clients over the past decade to develop profitable, optimized and enduring enterprises.

Guy founded Addison Advisory Inc. in 2009 while studying part-time after repeatedly being asked by friends and family to assist in matters of business transactions, negotiation and valuation. Since then the firm has moved from strength to strength, merging with Comline Attorneys in 2020 to become Addison Comline (pty) ltd.
