Excellence

Holding ourselves and our work to the highest standards

Diversity

Acknowledging our country's past and protecting and promoting the diversity of our lawyers as a powerful diferentiator

Transformation

As a truly South African law firm, we strongly believe in transformation. We want to be a part of brining positive change to the legal profession in South Africa. We aspire to be a firm:

1

Whose partners and professional and support employees are representative of the racial, gender, cultural and religious diversity of the people of South Africa

2

Where men and women at all levels within the firm enjoy equal opportunities and treatment in relation to access to work, recruitment, promotion and remuneration

3

That creates a working environment that is sensitive to the particular challenges faced by previously marginalised groups such as women and black people.
