LAW FOR ALL Named Best Big Legal Team in Africa

We are proud to announce that LAW FOR ALL has been named the Best Big Legal Team in Africa at the 2017 African Legal Awards.

“It is a huge honour to be named the best big legal team in Africa and acknowledged for our goal to make the law affordable and accessible for all,” said Managing Director, Adv. Jackie Nagtegaal.

The ceremony, which took place on Friday, 8 September 2017, recognises exceptional achievement in Africa’s legal community at a time when the legal sector is going through a period of rapid change.

Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng, in his lifetime achievement acceptance speech, commended the fraternity on their respect for the rule of law in recent times, but urged all in the fraternity to assist the transformation that is desperately needed.

“LAW FOR ALL is proud to be part of transforming the legal sector. 92% of the lawyers we employ are African and 62% female, while 209 of our partner firms are black owned. We also actively support smaller firms financially to ensure they soar,” added Nagtegaal.

LAW FOR ALL was also nominated for the Innovation Award and the CSR/Transformation & Economic Empowerment Award, which is yet to be announced.

South African courts work extremely hard and are overloaded with cases. A legal matter can take up to 3 years before it is heard in court. What’s more, our laws are increasingly making mediation before litigation compulsory. LAW FOR ALL is a leader in mediation and has been doing it for over 20 years. In fact, the company resolves most of its cases successfully through mediation.

“Our clients go to bed every night knowing that they have the best lawyers on the African continent watching their backs.”

LAW FOR ALL will continue to work tirelessly to make the law more affordable and accessible for South Africans.
