Corporate and commercial law

Bowman Gilfillan has been a leader in the South African market for corporate law services for over a century. We have played a significant role in the integration of our local marketplace into the rapidly changing global arena.

We have been involved in many of the country’s ground-breaking corporate transactions. The market’s recognition of Bowman Gilfillan as a leading corporate law practice is attributable to our extensive local and international client base and our depth and breadth of expertise.

Bowman Gilfillan’s corporate department is at the heart of our practice and now makes up the major portion of our firm. Our extensive local and international experience, the exceptional legal skills and training of our lawyers at all levels of seniority combined with our commitment to service excellence and hard work, means that we’re able to provide our clients with an effective means to capitalise on opportunities and overcome challenges in all sectors of the economy.

Our lawyers are fully aware of the need for legal advice and legal structures to be compatible with the needs of modern commerce, industry and finance.

Corporate, commercial and financial services constitute the major part of our practice. South Africa’s reintegration into international markets has dramatically changed the face of our economy and the way business is conducted. Bowman Gilfillan has anticipated and is reflecting these patterns of change.

We have been involved in several of South Africa’s ground-breaking corporate and financial transactions, and advise listed and un- listed domestic and international corporations, banks and financial institutions, light and heavy industrial firms, state-owned enterprises and government departments. This has given us a strong foundation from which to advise domestic and international clients in all sectors of the economy, including building, engineering, financial services, information technology, manufacturing, mining and energy, pharmaceuticals and transport.

Our lawyers continually review our service standards against the benchmark of the service expectations of multinational clients. At the same time, we strive to ensure that the solutions we provide are cost effective. Our size, resources, combination of breadth of skills, communications, facilities and geographic spread enable us to handle the largest and most time-critical transactions when required.
