About Us

We first opened our doors in Brits in 1921 as Wicht & Marais.  Founded by Mr Eugene Marais, the son of the famous writer of the same name, who, together with Mr. Wicht, became the origin of a number of amusing local anecdotes that are still talked about in the area.

Pierre Langenhoven took over in 1979, and steered the firm into one of the biggest law firms in the area. In 2001, he was joined by Johann Pistorius who strengthened and expanded our Litigation Department. 

In 2011, in response to our clients’ changing needs, we opened a branch office in Hartbeespoort from which we’ve managed to service a large number of corporate and private clients.
