Long Business Description


Webber Wentzel is an African firm founded in South Africa more than 150 years ago. We provide in-depth legal and tax services through​out the continent. Our alliance with Linklaters and network of deep relationships with Africa's leading firms allows us to draw on the highest quality and most business relevant pan-African advice - matching this to the needs of our clients. We have over the last 50 years worked on some of the most transformative and significant matters on the African continent.​

We are committed to exceptional client service consistently delivered through every client experience. We have extensive experience in advising on matters spanning Africa's countries, regions and languages: our track record is testimony to this. We support our clients across Africa: we do this independently or working alongside our established and integrated network of alliance and key relationship firms. Whether you work with us independently or alongside our network firms, we deliver a 'single firm' experience. With our culturally diverse teams and African proximity, we have developed a fundamental understanding of the continent's multiple and varied legal systems and cultures. We also bring international perspective to our clients through our alliance with global firm. Linklaters.

We are an accredited Level 1 broad-based black economic empowerment (B-BBEE) contributor and we are engaged in a number of initiatives aimed at driving transformation and inclusivity within our organisation, the legal sector and our society. As a firm, we insist on a diverse and inclusive culture where our people feel a sense of belonging, are enabled to realise their professional aspirations and are empowered to reach their full potential. We have a multipronged D&I strategy and measure and track the progress of our journey.

Webber Wentzel has over many years established itself as an industry leader based on client-centricity and excellent service. To achieve client service at this level the environment is fast-paced and results-orientated. We know at our core that this level of service could not be achieved without having, attracting and growing the best people. We are deeply committed to the development and well-being of our people. We are also focused on creating a working environment where people feel engaged and able to reach their full potential and to bring new ideas and innovation. Key to our success has also been creating a culture of collaboration and one where people feel supported. We are a firm that wants to make a real difference and we want our people to feel that they can make that difference too.

Our commitment to deliver innovative and efficient services to our clients is demonstrated by our sustained investment in the development and pioneering use of the most advanced legal tech and AI. Clients can also optimise the right combination of resources and technical support on document intensive matters through our team of Legal Project Managers and accessing the legal technology and legal process improvement expertise we offer. These tools and services offer clients incredible efficiencies especially in complex and multi-jurisdictional matters.
