Spoor & Fisher beats own PMR.africa Awards record with category’s highest rating

In its annual Excellence Awards, South African consultancy and research company PMR.africa has once again awarded Spoor & Fisher the coveted Diamond Arrow Award for 2021.

In 2019, we won in the Specialist Legal Services – Intellectual Property category, receiving the highest rating: 4.28 of a possible 5.00.

This year, however, with PMR.africa having completed its annual national survey on “Law Firms in South Africa”, we have beaten our own record, with a mean score of 4.31 of a possible 5.00.

This achievement is particularly impressive in light of some of the 29 attributes on which our firm was measured, including:

  1. Africa affiliations
  2. Caring about clients
  3. Ease of doing business
  4. Feeling ‘safe’
  5. Flexible approach to billing
  6. International affiliations
  7. Reputation (i.e. perception of the firm’s brand, integrity, CSI)
  8. Specialist knowledge/expertise
  9. Technical expertise
  10. Value for money

We were measured by a random national sample of 300 respondents, comprising in-house corporate legal advisors, MDs, CEOs, financial directors, company secretaries and senior managers from listed and large companies.

As such, everyone at Spoor & Fisher would like to express our gratitude for the acknowledgment.

We hope to continue to set a benchmark for others to aspire to, rooted in the hard work and superior talent of our lawyers, support staff, partners, service providers, and industry colleagues.

And to our clients, thank you for trusting us to support you in what you do.
