Nicolene Schoeman says “the change in their branding and the welcoming of Mr Mzo Tshaka is the culmination of my life-long dream. It has always been my intention to establish a firm that really caters for the needs of entrepreneurs (regardless for the business’ size) and business owners (in their personal capacity.) In addition I have always wanted this firm to be proudly South African, where the staff is diverse in every sense and where we, together, make a powerful team. I believe our power lies within our diversity and in our pride of being South African.”
Nicolene’s views are shared by Mzo who says “one of the reasons I decided to join the team was the firm’s commitment to having a genuinely South African law firm, anchored in the spirit of diversity. There is no doubt in my mind that our clients will greatly benefit from our know-how, experience and diversity.”
This new chapter will take the firm to new heights and propel it to its rightful place as being a trend-setting firm where clients receive tailor made legal solutions that comply but also make good business sense.
