"GMI is a unique firm of empowered individuals. It is grounded by integrity and draws strength from its diversity. We strive to invent the future by providing innovative solutions to our stakeholders"
The firm’s uniqueness is borne out by the three pillars which underpin our overall approach and strategy. These include a high premium on the personal well–being and development of our lawyers and their support staff. Our people are thus our first and most important pillar of success. We also believe in offering our clients legal health by mastering our clients’ business and the environment within which they operate. In this way, we are able to partner with our clients in pursuing their strategic imperatives whilst assisting them in steering from the legal challenges encountered in the ordinary course of business. This innovative alternative to legal services offering is our second pillar of success.
GMI is proudly a truly South African Law Firm. Consistent with its commitment to broad-based transformation GMI has appointed Aneesa Mahomed as its first black female Chairperson of the Board. We have managed to achieve demographic diversity which emulates the South African miracle. This places us at the forefront of transformation in the legal services sector and we have become an employer of choice in the legal field. This latter attribute is the third pillar and the strength in diversity we speak of in our mission statement.
The firm has succeeded in bringing together experience extending over five decades and quality black legal expertise. In light of this recognised success, we are a major advisor in both the public sector and to the corporate world. We are able to bring a world of experience gained from our advisory role in the public sector to the corporate world and in so doing ensure that the corporate world attains and maintains legal health, given the regulatory environment in which business operates.
