RW Attorneys are proud of our 133 year old legacy as one of the oldest law firms in Pretoria. The firm has grown, evolved and stayed the course during incredible historical milestones since its incorporation in 1889.
Our firm witnessed the Boer War, the First and Second World wars, the Great Depression, the Apartheid era and transition to a new democracy, not to forget the Covid Pandemic and the brave new AI world.
Our firm has remained an anchor of legal leadership spanning 3 centuries and are now poised to drive the transition to inclusivity, empowerment and representation well into the following 3 centuries.
In March 2023, in celebration of our heritage, Faathima Asmall (Managing Director) handed over all historical documents and photos from the long history of the firm to Die Erfenisstigting at the Voortrekker Monument, for safe keeping as part of their historical collection. These documents and photographs can be viewed by the public by contacting Die Erfenisstigting directly on +27 12 326 6770.
