The firm

Fasken has had an established presence in Africa for over 130 years, with the founding partner in South Africa commencing practice as an attorney in Grahamstown in 1879 before moving to Johannesburg in 1886.

A merger in 2013 saw us become one of the largest law firms operating in Africa and Canada. Our Johannesburg team has experience and expertise in all of Africa's established and growth industries, including mining, energy, infrastructure, life sciences, healthcare, technology and finance.

With over 700 lawyers with ten offices in Africa, Canada, China and the UK, we work with our colleagues across the firm to help our clients succeed.

Our practice spans every sector of business, industry and government providing strategic advice to a broad range of clients including close to half of the Fortune 100 companies. We work with corporate clients -large, medium and small companies, government agencies, regulatory authorities, non-profit bodies and individual clients offering expertise in both common law and civil law in English, French, Chinese (Mandarin) and all South Africa's official languages.
