Life at Werksmans
 

ABOUT US

Established in the early 1900s, we are an ambitious and leading South African corporate and commercial law firm serving multinationals, listed companies, financial institutions, entrepreneurs and government. Operating in Gauteng and the Western Cape, and a member of the LEX Africa Alliance and The Interlex Group, the firm’s reputation is built on the combined experience of Werksmans and Jan S. de Villiers, which merged in 2009.

Our people are bound by a common drive to be involved in and make a positive impact on the matters that define South Africa today and will shape the future of our country.

 
DAVID HERTZ, CHAIRMAN

"If you are looking for a firm that will give you hands-on experience and access to some of the most brilliant legal minds on the African continent, then Werksmans is right for you. Similarly, if you want to be part of the development and growth of South African society, this is the place.’’

David Hertz, Chairman
