South Africa

Contacts

With its rich mineral reserves, flourishing renewable energy market and sophisticated financing industry, South Africa is an attractive destination for foreign direct investment, as well as a major outward investor.

We are one of the top legal practices in South Africa with close to 300 lawyers, and offices in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg. We handle a rising tide of cross-border transactions on behalf of major domestic and international corporates, commercial banks, government bodies, large mining concerns and multinationals.

We are advising a large number of the companies building renewable energy facilities in South Africa, as part of the government’s high-profile 20-year plan to generate electricity from renewable energy. We are also strong in oil and gas and power sectors.

We are consistently top ranked by the major directories for our work in mining and insurance, and have one of the premier dispute resolution and litigation practices in South Africa. We are equally strong in corporate and M&A work, financial institutions and telecommunications, and we are regarded as a market leader in banking and finance.

Our lawyers have advised on the largest and most complex broad-based black economic empowerment transactions carried out in South Africa to date.
