Norton Rose Fulbright South Africa Inc.


As a dynamic, global legal practice with offices in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town, we have one of the largest legal footprints in South Africa. We employ more than 500 people, with 200 lawyers offering experience and knowledge across the spectrum of legal disciplines. Our clients include financial institutions, major industrial and commercial corporations, mining houses, parastatals and government departments.

Further, we provide an international pan-African legal service and legal advice to corporates, investment funds and financial institutions doing business in Africa.

·         Antitrust and competition

·         Aviation

·         Banking and finance

·         Communications, media and technology

·         Constitutional and administrative law

·         Construction and engineering

·         Tax

Our international business experience, combined with our black empowerment experience, gives us special insight into South Africa. We advise clients on how to reflect these requirements in their contracts, and on possible local implementation issues, as we more than meet them ourselves.

Norton Rose Fulbright in South Africa is classified as a Black-influenced company with 12 black directors, representing about 13 percent black ownership. The practice is also well ahead of its employment equity goals with 42.47 percent of its professional staff and 57.52 percent of its non-professional staff coming from previously disadvantaged backgrounds.

In addition, we provide training and work opportunities for a continuous stream of law graduates from previously disadvantaged communities.

Skills development is paramount and the practice provides a comprehensive training programme for all its young lawyers. This includes weekly lectures and training sessions by internal and external lecturers.

As a concerned corporate citizen, the practice spends about one percent of post-tax operating profit on a range of social uplift projects and programmes.

The practice has long recognised the need for social intervention by professionals to provide legal and other assistance to those without access to legal representation and, in 2007, it set up a formal Public Interest Law Department for this purpose.
