The PH Group was established in 2006 by founding member firm PH Attorneys and has since evolved to become the Largest Legal Network in South Africa and the only network of its kind that caters exclusively to the needs of South African law firms.
PH Attorneys established the PH Group in response to an identified need of small and medium-sized law firms to form part of a larger network and so gain access to shared resources, expertise and economies of scale.
The success and need of such a network is evidenced by the continuing growth of the PH Group over nearly 20 years since the first member firm, Kotze Low Swanepoel, joined the PH Group in 2006.
PH Attorneys is a large full-service law firm with offices in Bloemfontein, Sandton and Cape Town. It was established in 2002 by founding partners, Violet Phatshoane (now an Acting Judge of the Supreme Court of Appeal) and Douglas Henney (current Chair of the PH Group), with the vision of establishing a transformed law firm capable of providing legal services at the highest levels.
Nature of the PH Group
The PH Group is a national association of independent like-minded firms that practice in association but not in partnership with each other and with separate liability. Member firms conclude an association agreement with PH Attorneys in terms of which they gain access to and become a member firm of the PH Group.
