At GSM Law we’re committed to doing things in an entirely refreshing way. How? Here are three unique ways we offer legal value:

1.SMART.Providing top quality advice and using best practice to provide efficient, fresh thinking solutions.
2.ATTENTIVE.Really listening. Really caring – where we connect human to human with real empathy.
3.VALUE.Orientating ourselves around understanding your need(s), and then addressing them, rather than just selling time.


GSM was founded in 1995 by Grant Gunston in Cape Town. In just over 27 years, the firm has expanded into a trusted and reputable concern offering a full range of services, in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban, South Africa. Currently, we have a staff complement of over 40 employees which is made up of our professional staff and backed up by a dedicated and specialised support team. We have also developed a strong, value-matched, broad network of business partners. We place a high premium on offering our clients value in the form of quality legal services at reasonable rates, delivered with professionalism, integrity, efficient administration, and excellent communication throughout.


We, as a firm, have been intentional in prioritising transformation, and have worked hard, not just with the codes but more importantly in seeking to empower those that have been disadvantaged by apartheid. The two issues (true transformation and the codes) should and (though imperfectly) do talk to one another, and so we are particularly pleased to have seen our intentions reflected in our numbers, as we maintain our B-BBEE Level 1 status. We commit to maintain this level and ensuring the empowerment of our staff and suppliers.


At GSM Law, we take our commitment to the community seriously. We are proud to support and engage with local organisations that share our values of making a positive impact. One of our main pillars of community involvement is our partnership with Oasis, a renowned non-profit organization dedicated to empowering underserved communities and providing crucial resources and support. Additionally, we actively contribute to the Nolands Foundation, a philanthropic initiative that focuses on creating a better future for South Africa through various charitable efforts. We believe that by working hand in hand with organizations like Oasis and the Nolands Foundation, we can make a meaningful difference and help build stronger, more vibrant communities. It's our way of giving back and fostering positive change in the areas where we live and work.
