It is with great pleasure and pride that we congratulate the winners of the Probono.org 2019 awards. Directors, Naledi Motsiri and Dakalo Singo scooped two well-deserved awards namely, the Housing award (Naledi and Dakalo) and the Refugees award (Dakalo) at the ceremony held at Constitutional Hill on the 21 November 2019. Notably, we were the only law firm to have won more than one award.

The Housing award attributes to the assistance provided by our team in terms of general legal advice regarding housing related matters to communities in Johannesburg. The Refugees award relates to our team’s continuous assistance in providing refugees with legal advice pertaining to their general rights in South Africa. Further to this – Dakalo’s representation in this regard has been key in terms of the court ruling earlier this year granting asylum seekers the right to claim unemployment benefits.
A huge thank you and appreciation to Dakalo, Naledi and the rest of our Pro Bono team for the selfless work that they continue to do in flying the Werksmans flag, uplifting our communities and contributing to a better South Africa for all.
