Our Story

The firm was established by Hein Laage during October 1976 in the then booming mining town of Carletonville. He established the firm in conjunction with the firm Schoeman & Kellerman from Welkom with whom he did his articles as a candidate attorney. The firm was initially known as Laage Schoeman & Kellerman.

Mr Laage soon bought out the interest of Schoeman & Kellerman and practised for his own account for a short period of time before he was joined by Peet Erasmus. At this point in time the firm’s name changed to Laage Schoeman & Erasmus. Like many marriages this partnership did not last very long where after the firm’s name changed to Laage Schoeman in 1979.

The firm’s name finally changed to the present day Laage Schoeman & Stadler when Francois Stadler joined the firm in 1982. This partnership proved to be much more enduring and lasted for more than 14 years before the partners decided to incorporate the firm by registering a professional services company known as Laage Schoeman & Stadler Incorporated in 1996.
