Rated by corporate South Africa in the top two law firm rankings over the past five years

In the PMR.Africa annual survey assessing the top legal firms in South Africa, a random, national sample of in-house corporate lawyers, financial directors, MD's, CEO's, company secretaries and senior managers rate the legal firms. Some 800 respondents rate the legal firms across a range of 21 attributes including quality and range of services offered, knowledge of clients' business, response quality and thoroughness. 

For the past five years, Cliffe Dekker has achieved the remarkable distinction of being rated one of the two top large law firms in South Africa in the PMR Africa survey. For three years in succession, corporate South Africa placed Cliffe Dekker first and rated it an "outstanding" law firm in the survey, making it the only large law firm to have achieved these rankings and won the prestigious Diamond Arrow award three years in a row.

Hofmeyr has also been consistently highly ranked in the PMR Africa survey. The Real Estate practice has consistently scored the highest ratings over the past four years. Hofmeyr was also awarded two emPower Awards by PMR as winners in the Black Economic Empowerment and "War Against Criminals" categories for the professional services sector. This category included the non-legal professional services sector such as the auditing and accounting firms.
