Following South Africa's Zondo Commission of Inquiry into Allegations of State Capture, Corruption and Fraud in the Public Sector including Organs of State, there is a heightened focus on public law to tackle prevalent issues facing South Africa. These include the need for effective accountability, consequence management, improved service delivery, infrastructure development and sound public finance management. The revelations and investigations brought forth during the Zondo Commission have underscored the importance of effective legal measures including appropriate and fit-for-purpose regulatory frameworks to advance accessibility, quality, transparency and accountability in both public and private sectors. In light of this, we welcome the formalisation of our Public Law practice, with its dedicated service designed to offer comprehensive constitutional, regulatory, advisory, transactional and litigation support to clients across various industries in both the private and public sectors.
