If you would like more information, or to offer your firm as a 'transferring' firm, please e-mail LSSA@LSSA.org.za or

The LSSA invites leading law firms to join it in its Synergy Link aimed at empowering predominantly black-owned firms. The initiative will assist predominantly black-owned law firms (the 'growing' firms) to enter new fields from which they, traditionally, have been excluded, with confidence.

A ‘growing firm’ will be linked to a ‘transferring’ firm for a certain period, to be empowered in an ‘advanced’ area of practice.

The ‘link’

The ‘link’ between two firms will

  • take place in terms of a written agreement;
  • require the parties to set down their expectations as regards development, location, time and method of transfer; (this will include counseling, mentorship, coaching etc)
  • take place for a specific duration;
  • require both parties to report to the LSSA in writing; and
  • ideally, continue after completion of the formal engagement

‘Transferring' firms will receive

  • recognition on the LSSA website
  • recognition in De Rebus and any relevant media opportunity; and
  • an award from the LSSA.


Synergy Link can be utilised towards the Enterprise Development points for the Transferring Firm B-BBEE scorecard. Read more here

The LSSA assures you of its cooperation and support to both transfering and growing firms.
