Benaters | Boutique Law Firm in Johannesburg

About Us

Small Team. Big Impact.


Our Story

Unyielding commitment to superior client service and representation led to the formation of Benaters. Our attorneys have attained legal experience and perspective while practising within distinguished boutique firms. This experience led to an amassing of skills and observation of the different ways firms can operate.

We synergistically deliver a powerful combination to our clients: we combine big-law-firm skills, flexible and attentive service, inside and varied perspectives, scalability, a keen business sense, and of course affordability.

By providing you access to the broadest possible range of knowledge and experience at our disposal, we are large enough to get the job done, yet small enough to ensure high-quality and personalised legal services to both businesses and individuals.
