The Women in Law Conference | Vienna | September 12-14, 2024

Zama Ngcobo


I am a construction and dispute resolution lawyer providing specialist legal advice on the strategic delivery of large, complex infrastructure and natural resources projects. I am also a construction law lecturer, international speaker and board member, as well as a published author. In 2021, I founded WMN Attorneys Inc., a female-led, award-winning, boutique commercial law firm based in Johannesburg, South Africa.

During my career, I have both witnessed and experienced how women can be overlooked for opportunities allowing for career progression. I felt the need to create a safe space for young female attorneys and attorneys of colour to gain experience, grown and flourish. My experience and the experiences of other like me is why I am passionate about equal opportunities for women.
