It all started in the year 1893, when Mostert & Bosman was established in Cape Town. Since then Mostert & Bosman has become a well-known name in the legal fraternity. In 1993, under the leadership of well-known and respected attorney Etienne Coetzee, the ownership and control of the firm was transferred to the current partnership. Under the leadership of this new, dynamic and highly motivated team, the firm rapidly expanded to a well-established and integrated company, providing trusted legal advice to a wide client base.

Operating as an independent Western Cape based firm with a legacy spanning 125 years, Mostert & Bosman boasts an extensive network and has crafted lasting relationships in both the business world and legal profession. Our operating capabilities and services extend across South Africa through our network of correspondents with whom we have developed excellent relationships over many years. We regard them as our external partners and an extension of our firm.

Mostert & Bosman prides itself in its ability to offer personal and powerful solutions to a wide range of clients, from private individuals to large corporates and public authorities.
