Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr increases its ranking in latest ‘Best Lawyers’ survey

Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr’s (CDH) lawyers once again feature prominently in the 8th edition of Best Lawyers in South Africa, one of the profession’s respected peer review publications.

This year Best Lawyers recognised 10 directors in CDH’s Cape Town office and 26 lawyers from the Johannesburg office.

Notably, three of the firm’s lawyers received Lawyer of the Year awards, namely Emil Brincker (Tax), Pieter Conradie (Arbitration and Mediation) in Johannesburg, and Francis Newham (Mergers and Acquisitions) in Cape Town.

Adding to this impressive achievement, CDH’s Real Estate practice was named the Law Firm of the Year in their practice area.

The recognition comes hot on the heels of the firm’s major strides in the IFLR1000 2017 Financial and Corporate guide, wherein CDH’s Mergers and Acquisitions practice jumped one rung to tier one.

These achievements follow from a number of awards received during 2016, notably clinching top honours in the DealMakers’ Awards for M&A deal flow for the seventh year running.

“As a firm, we pride ourselves in the breadth and depth of our expertise as these attributes directly translates into an advantage for our clients. Among other indicators such as our client list and high profile transactions, our lawyers’ prominence across a number of prestigious accolades shows that CDH boasts some of the country’s most respected legal minds,” says CDH CEO Brent Williams.
