Fasken Martineau is one of the first international law firms to be established in South Africa, opening up in Johannesburg in 2003. Our experience throughout Africa has given us unique cultural and procedural insights into local requirements.
Our lawyers have particular expertise in mining, energy, securities, and mergers and acquisitions. We provide expert advice to clients across Africa and abroad through industry and practice groups. We serve our clients in respect of both “inbound” African matters and “outbound” matters that call on the resources of the firm’s network of offices.
Close collaboration between our European and Canadian offices enables us to work seamlessly on your behalf as experienced and efficient project teams. We have focused practice capabilities and sector knowledge that enable us to tailor our solutions to your unique needs.
The firm has been rated by Empowerdex, an accredited rating agency, as an AA-rated entity and level-3 contributor to Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment. We are also a Value-Adding Supplier in terms of the BBBEE Codes of Good Practice. This means that our clients may use 125% of the value of our fees towards the preferential procurement element of their scorecard.
