Phatshoane Henney Attorneys has achieved the highest verification level available to a South African firm by being formally rated as a Level 1 Contributor to BEE which requires the firm to have received at least 100/100 points on its BEE Scorecard.

“It has always been the vision of the firm’s founders to build a truly South African law firm, with transformation being a central prerogative for us. Being a nearly 60% black owned large law firm, we believe we are achieving what we have set out to do and see this Level 1 certificate as a confirmation thereof. Diversity lies at the heart of our firm and is a core value which permeates through our firm and our approach towards our staff and clients. We are overjoyed by this significant verification result,” says Jan Berry, CEO.

This verification level also means that clients who use Phatshoane Henney Attorneys, will in turn reap the benefits when it comes to their own BEE verification through the 135% enhanced recognition which the firm’s level 1 status will afford them under their overall procurement expenditure as well as for their expenditure on more than 51% black owned suppliers.

“Our diversity as a firm has also become a vital asset that allows us to better understand and serve our clients. We see this certificate therefore also as reconfirmation of our continuing commitment to transformation and the setting of standards for the transformation of the legal profession,” he concludes.
