In 1955 the firm merged with Renaud, Fellows-Smith and Mooney with whom they had a long and close association. This resulted in a name change to Mooney Ford and Partners. The firm continued under this name from 1955 to 2002 when it changed its name to the present day Mooney Ford.

Various prominent lawyers have practiced at Mooney Ford including the legendary Jack Mooney a well known sportsman and Wally Chaplin, who, in the 1960’s, was a President of the Natal Law Society and a President of the then Association of Law Societies.

Today, Mooney Ford, is made up of a number of partners practising in various specialist and general fields of law. The firm is well positioned in the Durban CBD area to offer a range of legal services to its clients[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”Our Team” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:center” google_fonts=”font_family:Montserrat%3Aregular%2C700|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_single_image image=”338″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_shadow_3d”][vc_column_text]
