Webber Wentzel has taken first place in The Legal 500 Europe, Middle East and Africa directory listing, maintaining its top spot as the most highly ranked South African law firm.
The firm has achieved the highest number of Tier 1 rankings in South Africa this year – building on its lead of eight Tier 1 rankings last year. In addition, over 50 of its partners received individual recognition in the rankings.
“We are also consistently growing the number of mandates we act on in Africa outside of South Africa and our position in the recent Legal 500 EMEA rankings is testament to that,” says Christo Els, Webber Wentzel Senior Partner.
Over the years, the firm has consistently been ranked as a Top Tier South African law firm by leading international legal directories, and these rankings follow hot on the heels of the recent Chambers Global research, where 18 of the firm’s practice areas were ranked, 12 of which were in band 1 – again more than any other South African law firm
“These accolades reaffirm our position in the market as the dominant South African law firm. Our cutting-edge expertise across multiple practice areas and our deep bench strength is recognised by our clients and the market as a key differentiator,” says Els.
