Malan Scholes is a specialised law firm based in Johannesburg. We have particular expertise in the African mining sector, as well as in mergers & acquisitions across various industries.

We focus on three main areas, namely corporate & commercial lawdispute resolution and mining & environmental law.


As your legal partner, we aim to help you find simple and elegant solutions to complex legal problems. We focus on developing strong relationships with our clients, which means you’ll be able to enjoy a single point of contact at the firm.

Although we advise some of South Africa’s leading companies and largest mining houses, our smaller size means that we can still be flexible. This allows us to select external advisers that are leaders in their fields, working with them to deliver superior results that speak for themselves.

At Malan Scholes, we’re not afraid to think differently. Whether you have an issue relating to corporate & commercial lawmining & environmental law or dispute resolution – we have the skills you need.
