Founded in 2017 by Koena Herbert Mpshe, KM Attorneys is a boutique law firm anchored around ingenuity in providing prime legal solutions to complex legal challenges facing multilateral companies, SOEs, Government Departments as well as the general public in South Africa. We believe that the prosperity of South Africa depends upon the country’s collective capacity to trade and invest strategically, thus our role is to facilitate the development of tactical legal pillars necessary for meaningful, sustainable and dynamic economic output.
long-standing deterrent to foreign direct investment in South Africa and other developing countries is weak enforcement of binding contracts and policy uncertainty. Realising this huge gap in the market with far reaching consequences to trade and insurance lawyers in South Africa and Africa at large, Koena Mpshe Attorneys was founded. We aim to be the first point of reference before traders and investors in the developing countries can contract themselves out of recourse with the developed world, and we ensure that traders and investors understand
their commitments in international agreements. We guarantee that our clients receive the very best service experience and legal advice that the profession has to offer.
