Welcome to the “MOST INSPIRING SA LAW FIRM 2023”™ competition!

Load shedding started in 2003 and was declared a national state of disaster in February 2023. The Eskom Relief Bill and Minister of Electricity were introduced in March 2023. Until October 2023, South Africa experienced more than 5900 hours load shedding during more than 240 days of 2023. Load shedding impacted the rights of all South Africans and posed unprecedented challenges to households, businesses and our economy.

However, when faced together with adversity, South Africans have proven to be resilient and creative in problem solving. We invite South African law firms to share how load shedding impacted legal services, how they coped with challenges and lessons learned. We are curious to document, share and celebrate lawyer stories of operational adaptability, caring for people’s wellbeing and protecting clients’ interests.

The purpose of this competition is to offer a platform to inspire each other and boost the image of the legal profession to the South African public. Let’s also encourage younger colleagues to take the torch forward!
