South Africa

As a leading international law firm we are experienced in working in South Africa and regularly advise on transactions and other instructions that involve South Africa or South African companies. Our South African team, backed by our global network, is able to bring a distinctive set of skills, international perspective and strategic thinking to every mandate.

We maintain excellent relationships with the leading law firms in the country and work with them daily. This allows us to operate together as one team, creating efficiency and the overall quality of service that our clients expect.

For each individual mandate we select the best suited firm and lawyer, not only in terms of technical legal ability but also in terms of efficiency, responsiveness and commercial fit.

On cross-border instructions, we spend a great deal of time helping identify the right local law firm and the right lawyers for our clients. We work together to ensure minimal overlap between our roles and theirs, providing a seamless service with a single point of delivery
