Chambers Africa Awards 2023 Award: South Africa Specialist Law Firm of the Year

Spoor & Fisher has been named “South Africa Specialist Law Firm of the Year” at the Chambers Africa Awards 2023, which recognizes us as a firm that has demonstrated “pre-eminence in key jurisdictions in the region” and “achievements over the past 12 months, including outstanding work, impressive strategic growth, and excellence in client service.”

Chambers recognised Spoor & Fisher as a premier South African firm for intellectual property law matters, with a long-standing history spanning over 100 years.  They also acknowledged that the firm today maintains one of the deepest IP benches in the country, with a team that features some of the market’s most well-reputed and experienced practitioners. Spoor & Fisher’s lawyers support a prestigious client base, and interviewees are quick to point out the firm’s longevity in the market and its highly commercial approach. Feedback received from clients included the fact that the team is regarded as “top-notch lawyers” who provide “strong advice and representation.” In recent years the firm has played a lead role in several pan-African anti-counterfeiting initiatives, demonstrating its increasing engagement in markets outside its home jurisdiction.
