Spoor & Fisher is well represented in the sixth edition of Best Lawyers in South Africa with five members of the team listed. Jean McIvor, Carl van Rooyen and Charles Webster of the Pretoria office, together with Eben van Wyk and former partner, current consultant Dr Owen Dean of the Claremont (Cape Town) office were selected for inclusion in the annual listings, based on peer-review.
Originating in the USA and with an international footprint, the Best Lawyers lists are determined by a three-step process, commencing with nominations made by clients, lawyers and marketing teams. Ballots are compiled and submitted to listed practitioners in the same geographical area and field of legal practice as the nominees.
The final lists are then compiled according to the assessments submitted by the voters. Best Lawyers listings are a vote of confidence in the capabilities and professionalism of these practitioners by their peers. Congratulations to our five colleagues who have been ranked among the top intellectual property law specialists in South Africa.
