If you’re an independent legal practitioner or want to grow your small legal firm, The Workspace can help with ideal office space for lawyers in Johannesburg.
All our branches offer affordable serviced offices that are suitable for lawyers and startup legal firms. Our Selby branch in the Johannesburg CBD is especially convenient for legal practitioners because it’s within walking distance of many of South Africa’s key courts.
Affordable office space for lawyers
Starting and building a viable law firm is no small feat. Establishing your base at The Workspace can relieve much of the burden associated with finding, setting up and running physical office space.
Move into one of our furnished offices and all the infrastructure you need to run a successful law firm is already in place. For example, this includes high-speed internet, kitchen facilities, meeting rooms, fully equipped boardrooms and more.
That leaves more time and money to focus on attracting clients and providing effective legal services.
Conveniently located for legal firms and independent practitioners
Our Selby branch is located on Village Road, conveniently central to Johannesburg’s business district and minutes away from many of the country’s most important courts.
These include the Constitutional Court of South Africa, the Johannesburg Central Magistrate Court, the Johannesburg Family Court Centre, the Specialised Commercial Crime Court, the Labour Court, the headquarters of the Board for South African Sheriffs and other regional High and Magistrates’ Courts.
Fully serviced offices in Johannesburg’s CBD
Our 63 private offices come in a variety of sizes, from single-person offices to larger offices suitable for small teams of up to four people. All offices come fully-furnished with desks, chairs and cabinets.
Because they are serviced, the offices are cleaned weekly and bins are emptied daily. Our reception desk will also answer and forward your calls, even when you are out of the office, and your guests will be greeted by branch managers.
Meeting rooms and boardrooms for meeting clients
Legal practitioners need professionally appointed, secure space for meeting with clients. For startup or small legal practices, this can add significantly to the size and cost of the required office space.
With The Workspace, you don’t have to shoulder this cost. All our members enjoy free access to professionally appointed meeting rooms with teleconferencing and projector facilities, ideal for meeting with clients.
We also have an 18-seater training room, available at a reasonable hourly rate. The training room includes a projector.
Convenient services for legal firms: courier and business services
Onsite courier services are particularly useful for sending important legal documents in a hurry. We also offer printing, copying, binding and laminating at a small additional cost. Offices come pre-installed with phone lines which you can rent if required.
Fibre internet and Wi-Fi – a “must-have” for legal firms and practitioners – come standard for all members. A private office also means you’ll have a credible business address for business correspondence and a mail handling service.
MiBusinessAssist: business support services
Our Selby branch also offers MiBusinessAssist from MiWay. All our members have on-site access to their business support services. These include administrative assistance, procurement support, compliance assistance and advice, and human resources services.
On-site storage and security
Legal practices generate a fair amount of paperwork, most of which needs to be archived. Take advantage of Selby’s on-site storage so you don’t have to leave the premises to manage and maintain your archives.
Our storage facility offers storage units from 4 m2 and up. We also have lockers available for day-to-day use. For added peace of mind, 24-hour security and CCTV cameras are in place to ensure anything you store at the branch is secure.
As with most of our branches, Selby also offers networking events on a regular basis. These events are not only a lot of fun, but they also offer opportunities for legal practices and independent practitioners to make new business connections.
The events usually feature talks or presentations from other members and outside experts on business and marketing topics. Members find the events to be extremely useful for meeting new people and learning new business skills.
