Smit Sewgoolam

Smit Sewgoolam Incorporated has a rich and proud history. Since the firm’s establishment, we have branched out, amalgamated, went through a name change and eventually settled on our current identity on 1 February 2005.

During this time, Smit Sewgoolam has established itself as a trustworthy and respected law firm within corporate South Africa, working closely with its clients and stakeholders in order to achieve optimal results, whilst always employing a pragmatic approach to ensure sustainable development and growth of its human resources.

Experience has shown us that having an open and transparent relationship with clients gives us the peace of mind and freedom to focus on our main objective: delivering high quality legal services and advice.

With a professional staff complement comprising of 8 directors and 12 attorneys, ably assisted by a large support staff, we have the confidence, experience and expertise to advise and assist our clients in all our specialized areas of practice.
