Done from the heart. From the start.

For Werksmans Attorneys, corporate citizenship provides us an opportunity to meet our social, cultural and environmental responsibilities – and to explore what possibilities exist for us to make a difference that reaches far beyond regulatory expectation. The communities we operate in need more than our expert legal minds to assist them. They need to know that the generations to come will enjoy a better life, with better amenities and better opportunities. Similarly, our economic and financial responsibilities to our shareholders are responsibilities we meet not only to affirm our identity as a firm committed to an unquestionable work ethic, but also to build on our 100-year old moral code that subscribes us to honesty, integrity and the highest of business principles.

Previous endorsement for good corporate citizenship

Our good corporate citizenship has always reached into our deep pool of talent, harnessing the best of our people’s skills and passions. It also attracts the right kind of talent to our firm; people who read in us a passion to serve society with a greater purpose and a greater outcome in mind.  

Our efforts have not gone unnoticed. The National Department of Social Development together with The National CSI Registrar recognised Werksmans for its contributions and efforts towards the social upliftment and enrichment of South African society, with the National CSI Registrar formally accrediting Werksmans for its achievements as a platinum community contributor for the period 2010 – 2011. We have since continued to pursue an increasing number of initiatives that leave communities strengthened and well-supported, with a future ahead of them alive with hope and opportunity. The work we do helps redress imbalances and tackle areas of need, all of which assures us and those we interact with that years hence, ours will still be the firm that did it from the heart, from the start.
