Our offices are in the central district of one of Africa’s largest economies with a first-class infrastructure, constitutional democracy, financial services centre and independent judiciary. In addition, South Africa is a gateway to high growth economies to the north, with the financial and professional expertise to help guide international investors seeking to access these markets for the first time. 

Full spectrum services

We specialise in providing practical and innovative full spectrum legal, tax and transaction advisory services. We are committed to developing young African talent and is accredited as a Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) Level 1 law firm.

Following an analysis of the South African and sub-Saharan Africa legal market we identified an opportunity to establish a new kind of legal business that capitalizes on structural pressures on more established law firms, as well as opportunities arising from affirmative procurement based on the principle of BEE and its related concept of transformation.
