Our Rich History
The merging of four legal firms in 2001, which constituted the convergence of attorneys and directors who had commenced practice
individually or in partnership in the seventies, represents 40 years of collective legal practice and experience.
At the beginning, these firms focused on criminal and civil matters, motor vehicle accidents as well as human rights. In the latter, they represented
activists and victims of the Apartheid era as well as union officials and members during a period of unprecedented political turmoil in the
MSMM prides itself on recognising the pivotal historical role played by its founding directors.
These individuals were all actively involved in facing the challenges of liberating South Africa and fighting
against the injustices of the Apartheid regime. The valuable contribution of MSMM’s founding
directors did not end there.
After the Apartheid regime had unbanned the country’s liberation movements, they participated in the drafting of South Africa’s first democratic
constitution. They also helped to restructure the judicial system of both the Higher and Lower courts.
Now, as MSMM continues to uphold and be inspired by the 40-year old legacy left behind by our founding directors, we remain ever mindful of our
company vision; driven by a passion for justice.
