Founding Director of Argumentum, Advocate Ivan Herselman, during his tenure working as the director of legal affairs at the Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse, was compelled to find innovative ways to solve important, complex and unique legal problems with tight budgets and smaller teams, almost always against much larger and better resourced opponents.  

In pursuit of finding better ways to solve problems, Ivan worked together with various business and legal consultants (practicing and non-practicing) to apply and develop effective and efficient problem solving and project management methodologies in order to reduce costs and increase certainty faster.

The vision of becoming the most efficient and effective remover of legal uncertainty in Africa and the mission to enable people to build great organisations by efficiently and effectively reducing and removing their legal uncertainty, is what drives  Argumentum and its problem solving teams.
