One determined young man may have founded the firm in 1917, but we are much more than a century old.

In 1917, an intrepid young lawyer, Nathan Werksman, founded what was to become an iconic law firm, guided by principles and values that have stood the test of time and today represent who we are; recognised experts in corporate and commercial law. From one decade to the next, the firm grew steadily in size and reputation, providing services to increasing numbers of clients and attracting and developing top-ranked legal minds.

These corporate and commercial lawyers had more than just a passion for law – they had a passion for client service. A century later, we can look back with a great sense of pride and accomplishment at the values and traditions inherited from Nathan Werksman’s vision, as we continue to build a legacy firm that will remain a beacon of excellence long into the future.

Success has a look. This is it.

One determined young man may have founded the firm in 1917, but we are much more than a century old. A firm like ours, made up of versatile multi-specialists, brings in combined legal expertise that goes well beyond the 100-year mark.

With 100 years already behind us, we know our firm will stand the test of time as it continues to raise the bar in corporate and commercial law.
