At Dyason, we believe in the law

About Dyason Attorneys

At Dyason, we believe in the law not only because it is just, but because it is crucial for the orderly functioning of our society.

We believe in it because through binding us, the law gives us freedom. And we practise it in a way that shows our faith in the law as the ultimate instrument of justice: with professionalism, accuracy and integrity.

We are one of the most experienced law firms in South Africa. Founded in 1939 by Roger Dyason, in his day a well-known Pretoria attorney, businessman and first chairman of Iscor, Dyason has expanded, amalgamated and transformed over the years, culminating in incorporation in 1992.

Our current staff comprises of over 100 people. More than 20 attorneys, a number of candidate attorneys, paralegals and administrative staff are among the most highly-regarded in the industry.

Our standards of professional excellence ensure that our commitment extends beyond furnishing technically correct legal advice – we continuously uphold the highest standards of integrity and exceed client expectations. We maintain our emphasis on fast, accurate and professional legal service. We are truly committed to adapting to a changing South African business environment, as is evident from our current staff profile. Personal contact and the development of sound relationships have kept Dyason successful over the years. The firm has established good working and professional relationships with clients, members of the legal fraternity, the public sector and parastatals.

As a dynamic and multi-faceted law firm, we distinguish ourselves through our adherence to the core values that guide not only our practising of the law, but all our personal and professional interactions. By entrusting Dyason with your legal issues, you know you are in capable hands.

BEE Credentials

We are serious about Black Economic Empowerment. Our current BEE complement of directors with full shareholding amounts to 33%, while the total non-professional BEE staff representivity amounts to 43.28%. The levels of BEE representivity are increasing continuously. For a more detailed breakdown of these figures, download our company profile.
