Werksmans Attorneys

Established in the early 1900s, Werksmans Attorneys is a leading South African corporate and commercial law firm offering an extensive range of legal services as well as legal advice to multinationals, listed companies, financial institutions, entrepreneurs and government.

Operating in Gauteng and the Western Cape, and connected to an extensive African legal network through LEX Africa, the firm’s reputation is built on the combined experience of Werksmans and Jan S. de Villiers, which merged in 2009. Through LEX Africa, a unique network of leading African commercial law firms that we manage and administer, we have representation in over 20 African countries aside from South Africa.
