The firm was established in 2021 by Zama Ngcobo, a South African qualified construction law specialist with over a decade’s experience in the industry. Zama began her career at Africa’s largest law firm and established WMN with the desire of creating a safe space for young, black women to flourish. WMN’s vision is to become the preeminent, pan-African, female-led law firm advising on projects across Africa and globally. In two and a half short years, WMN has grown from a team of one to a team of twelve, with offices in Durban and Johannesburg. The firm and its practitioners have been recognised by various reputable organisations across the globe, including the Veuve Clicquot Bold Woman Awards, the WOZA Africa Women in Law Awards, African Legal Awards as well as the Justitia Awards in Europe, receiving 15 nominations and accolades since its incorporation
