Who we are
We are the leading full-service law firm on the African continent. We combine the collective knowledge and experience of our firm to provide clients with seamless, tailored and commercially-minded business solutions within record times.
What we do
With 150 years of experience and industry knowledge, Webber Wentzel is the leading full-service law firm on the African continent.
Our passion to help our clients achieve their goals shows in the quality of the delivery of our service. We aim to add value in everything we do and to be the trusted adviser to our clients.
Our alliance with Linklaters and our deep relationships with outstanding law firms across Africa provides our clients with the best expertise wherever they do business.
We believe in making a positive contribution to the communities in which we work and we are proud to call ourselves home to one of South Africa’s most long-standing, dedicated pro-bono practices. We are committed to promoting access to justice for all South Africans, upholding the Constitution and protecting the rule of law.
At Webber Wentzel we believe in utilising our Candidate Attorneys for more than just their stapling, photocopying or coffee making skills. Not only will you be a valuable member of our team, but you’ll develop exceptional skills to become a world-class attorney.
We see ourselves as a meritocracy, rewarding high quality work and leadership with promotion. Our Candidate Attorney retention rate and number of young partners bears testimony to this practice. We too believe in investing where it matters most. Each year we award scholarships and bursaries to LLB students and internally we pride ourselves in investing in training to equip our staff with the skills and knowledge to facilitate their personal growth. We are also mindful of the importance of having work-life balance, so the Webber Wentzel Employee Wellness Programme provides you with professional support to deal with the challenges that you face in life.
