It is with extreme sadness that we announce the passing of our icon and co-founding partner, Maurice Phillips.
Maurice passed away peacefully with his doting wife, Pam, by his side.
Maurice, who started this practice with Paul Wisenberg on 1 March 1995, was instrumental in growing the practice into what it is today. Maurice who is widely regarded as one of South Africa's great lawyers by his peers and clients will be sadly missed by all but his ethos, the culture he instilled, and the pursuit of excellence will continue.
We wish Maurice's family our deepest sympathies and condolences at this very sad time. May his dear soul rest in peace.
