At the Chambers Africa Awards 2022, an event held as a digital awards ceremony on 13 January 2022, Webber Wentzel was again recognised as
South Africa Law Firm of the Year. This is the second year in a row that Webber Wentzel has won this accolade.
According to Chambers and Partners,
"Webber Wentzel boasts a formidable reputation as one of the strongest firms in South Africa but also continent-wide. The law firm is house to several top-rated departments, being consistently ranked among the best in many practice areas such as Banking & Finance, Debt & Equity Capital Markets, Competition/Antitrust and Corporate M&A. One of the firm’s highlights in the last year was acting on the investment of ZAR 400 million in Grobank by Access Bank, a deal that consisted of two tranches of investment and led to the rebranding of the target as Access Bank South Africa. The firm receives endorsements from clients who say that the 'breadth of knowledge the team possesses is the most superior in the market'".
The Chambers Africa Awards honour the achievements of law firms across the African continent. The winners are selected based on client feedback and extensive research for the Chambers Global Guide and the winners are recognised for their outstanding work across each jurisdiction. The awards reflect notable successes over the past 12 months and highlight impressive strategic growth and excellence in client service.
