Lucian Companie is an attorney and director at Phatshoane Henney Attorneys. He is also the Head of the firm’s Dispute Resolution Practice Group.
“I absolutely enjoy what I do and that is where I get my inspiration from. I love the law because it makes sense to me and I believe that legal supremacy is paramount in governing our society.”
This is according to Lucian, who says that he is part of a firm and a team where they believe in setting the standard by being innovative in their thinking, advice and service delivery to clients. “We are solution driven and subscribe to constantly evolving in our service delivery to clients, whose interest and satisfaction is of paramount importance to us.”
He considers last year as a highlight in his career. “It was my first year in my new role at the firm as the Head of the Dispute Resolution Practice Group and added to that, we as a firm managed to survive the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic thanks to the strong support of our staff and clients. Our firm was again named as the Best Law Firm in Central South Africa, now for the 11th consecutive year as awarded by PMR.Africa, which we are all proud of.”
Lucian was also elected as a council member of the National Legal Practice Council of South Africa where he serves as a member of the Rules, Ethics and Policies Committee, as well as the Disciplinary and Oversight Committee.
As much as he enjoys work, he is motivated by his family and his profession as he has a real passion for both. “I do take time off and that I spend with family. We enjoy and do look forward to holidays and seeing new places in South Africa. My kids are still young, so it is especially important for me to spend time with them.”
