“Highlights include being named Law Firm of the Year (Insurance Law and Real Estate Law) in the 14th Edition of Best Lawyers® in South Africa, 13 of the firm’s partners garnering recognition in their areas of expertise, and consultant Alastair Hay clinching the coveted Lawyer of the Year title. We expanded our national footprint to include offices in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban, thereby giving our client’s seamless services countrywide; and our PMR Diamond Award for the best Medium-sized Law Firm in South Africa, for the second year running, is the cherry on the top.”
Clark says, “The achievements of all the Partners and Consultants in 2022, as recognised by their peers and reinforced by our clients, speaks to the exceptional range of expertise displayed by our legal team and their ability to be able to provide customised legal solutions to our clients nationally and internationally, across a wide range of industry sectors and disciplines in both the private and public sector.”

The continued growth of Cox Yeats since our opening in 1964, has been in large part due to the dynamic and flexible approach with which we tackle both our legal matters, as well as the environment in which we operate.”
