MSMM is a distinguished South African law firm that prides itself on its African heritage, multi-disciplinary legal offering and a passion for pursuing justice.

Based in Tshwane – a stone’s throw away from the Union Buildings in Hatfield – the company was established after four prominent black Gauteng law firms merged in 2001.

We are mindful of the legacy of our founding directors Maluleke, Seriti, Makume, Matlala and Mavundla, after which the company is named. Four of these forebears went on to contribute to the third arm of government as illustrious judges in South Africa’s new democracy.

MSMM’s team of capable and experienced legal practitioners each practise in a wide range of specialisation areas. Our team comprises capable and experienced legal practitioners providing services in numerous specialisation areas. MSMM is premised on a deeply entrenched ethos for service excellence and professionalism, guided by our company vision and values.

– 1976, Maluleke, Msimang and Associates

This Kempton Park based firm established a solid reputation in the field of motor vehicle accident claims. One of its founding members, George Maluleke, was formerly Vice Chair of the Road Accident Fund (RAF).

– 1977, Seriti, Mavundla and Partners

As one of the first partnerships formed by attorneys from disadvant- aged communities, this firm was established in 1977. It built a strong reputation in a variety of legal fields, placing emphasis on client satisfaction and relentless effort. The company achieved this by consulting clients as regularly as possible and providing them with ongoing progress reports.

– 1997, Makume and Associates

This firm was established in 1997 after four law firms merged. Although relatively new, some of the experience of its legal partners dated back to 1980. The firm based its practice on the belief that opportunities exist for previously disadvantaged law firms to compete on an equal basis with other law firms, especially when securing clients in Government and major business concerns.
