About Us


Transformation lies at the heart of what defines our firm, our philosophy, our culture – our way of doing things. Continuing the vision of the firm’s founders to build a truly South African law firm, transformation remains a central prerogative for us.

In celebrating our diversity as a firm we have not only established what other firms aspire to, but have created a corporate culture where our diversity is a vital asset allowing us to understand and serve our clients with greater perspective. 

We are a 51% black owned large law firm, and we ensure that transformation, including gender empowerment, flows through our entire organisation. We have been recognised in 2015, 2016 and again in 2017 as one of South Africa’s top empowered companies by Impumelelo. 

Also in the Phatshoane Henney Group, we as a firm take leadership and set the tone for transformation in the Group. Our Group BEE Standards implemented across all firms in 2015, have resulted in substantial transformation taking place at all of our member firms to ensure that our member firms also set the standard for transformation in the legal profession.
