Most Innovative Law Firm of 2016, South Africa

In an ever-changing and dynamic legal landscape, it remains crucial for modern day law firms to remain vigilant of the demands of doing business. We got in touch with Magale Masemola, Attorney at Magma, to find out how they consistently innovate in order to remain at the forefront of their industry.

Our industry is constantly evolving, and we are constantly looking to develop our services in order to adapt to any emerging trends. For example, the influence of social media and the internet has made it possible to go beyond boundaries that would have otherwise proven difficult to reach or attain. So adapting to these demands such as these remains non-negotiable.

In terms of our background, Magma Incorporated Attorneys is a prestigious and versatile law firm situated in Sandton, Johannesburg, South Africa. We offer corporate and commercial legal services to an array of clients both in the private and public sectors. Our highly diverse range of services include the following: arbitrations (Including international arbitrations), business rescue, mergers and acquisitions, corporate finance, due diligences, commercial contracts, mining law, and property law (including conveyancing) notarial services and media law, and general commercial litigation in all magistrates and High courts of South Africa among others.

As a company working in a highly competitive industry, one of our differentiating factors is that we pride ourselves on being easily accessible where clients and potential clients can reach us with ease throughout our various offices nationwide. For us, the ability and willingness to get the work done within a short space of time without compromising quality is essential as it gives our clients sense of comfort in knowing that their matters are in good hands and their resolution a priority, regardless of how big or small. From our experience, clients and potential clients often look for solutions and they require them now. There are so many law firms in the market and any of our clients could have chosen to go to any other law firm, but the fact that they chose us make us proud and both inspires us and ignites an inherent need to do great for our mutual benefit. A happy client will always remember us and our quality service and always come back and even refer more clients. Ultimately we are responsible for our own destiny with our clients.

At the heart of everything we do is that we provide a high level of service in an affordable way. As everyone knows, legal matters can be extremely costly and because we regard our clients as part of our family, we try and accommodate them as much as possible. As soon as our new clients get on board with us, we become a formidable team.

As a result of our client-orientated ethos, we have a whole host of clients, both in the private and public sectors. Some of these clients include: First National Bank, a division of First Rand Bank Limited, City of Polokwane Municipality, Eskom SOC Limited, South African Local Government Association (SALGA), South African Football Association (SAFA), Skynet Worldwide Express, University of Mpumalanga, Tshwane University of Technology, The global brands, Finbond and Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality among many others

Our success has been, first and foremost, a team effort. All staff members understand that the success of the firm very much depends on them and their commitment to render a good quality service at all times. They should walk, talk and live the brand, and they are constantly reminded that we value their service to the firm and overall to our greater portfolio of clients. From our experience, the main obstacles we have had to overcome has always been about the transformation of the legal profession as a whole. In our new democracy, often big corporates will go to your typical so called big law firms to the neglect of the smaller to medium sized law firms, this apparently because they may not have confidence in the latter. Looking ahead, we are confident that our firm will continue to meet any further challenges that meet us along the way.
