At Cliffe Dekker Hofmeyr, our corporate culture is founded on our values. These values guide our behaviour amongst our employees, clients and communities.
Dedicating our best to our work, our clients and each other.
At CDH, we pride ourselves on being client-centric. The quality of our work and the consistency of our service earn us our clients' loyalty and trust. We do not rest on these laurels - we continually strive to add more value wherever we can.
We treat everyone - regardless of rank, title, status or tenure – with courtesy, consideration and attentiveness.
Each and every CDHer is expected to strive for quality in all that they do. We recognise the important difference between a relentless drive for quality on one hand and perfectionism on the other. We guard against the latter's trappings, not allowing our pursuit of excellence to manifest in inflexibility or paralysis.
As a truly African law firm, we strongly believe in transformation. We want to be a part of bringing positive change to the legal profession. We aspire to be a firm:
Whose partners and professional and support employees are representative of the racial, gender, cultural and religious diversity of the people of Africa.
Where men and women at all levels within the firm enjoy equal opportunities and treatment in relation to access to work, recruitment, promotion and remuneration.
That creates a working environment that is sensitive to the particular challenges faced by previously marginalised groups such as women and black people.
