Our mission is to be a leading practitioner and thought leader in Corporate Social Investment (CSI) as informed by global trends.


Caring for our communities is as important to us as being great lawyers. In fact, we see the two as being interlinked.

Within the South African context, CSI has a pivotal role to play in bringing about meaningful transformation to the benefit of all. The social needs facing our country are substantial and it is the moral duty for businesses in South Africa to make a difference by supporting projects that benefit certain sectors of our society.

However, we recognise that social giving is not enough in its own right: for CSI to be truly effective and make an on-going and meaningful difference in the lives of underprivileged people and to the overall economic wellbeing of the country, it needs to be well-managed and underpinned by the driving principle of sustainability.

Marais Attorneys actively supports CSI initiatives that:

  • Help to conserve our environment
  • Showcase our heritage
  • Encourage education
  • Support social development
