Who we are
In 2015, two of South Africa’s senior law firms merged to form Fairbridges Wertheim Becker. Fairbridges, established in Cape Town in 1812, and Wertheim Becker, founded in Johannesburg in 1904, brought together their matching values and vision to forge a strategic consolidation of their significant resources, expertise and experience.
Fairbridges Wertheim Becker is the oldest law firm in Africa and in the Southern Hemisphere. With offices in Johannesburg and Cape Town, the firm is ideally positioned to provide effective, professional legal services to both domestic and international clients.
With a reputation built on the ability to provide economic, practical, innovative and constructive legal support that is both principled and pragmatic, we are committed to maintaining the highest standards of professional representation. Our emphasis is on partnering with clients to fulfil their legal needs timeously and strategically.
