ENSafrica’s large dispute resolution team has extensive experience in advising local and international corporations, financial institutions, governments and regulatory bodies in respect of a wide range of disputes that require proactive and effective solutions across the African continent.
Our dedicated team focuses on dispute avoidance and risk management, with an emphasis on early assessment of the matter and a careful consideration of all aspects before taking action, in order to ensure that we adopt the right strategy to meet your expectations. This means that counsel and advice is obtained before any litigation process is considered.
Our key differentiator is that we have represented numerous clients in prominent, ground-breaking litigation, as well as in cross-border litigation.
These high-profile market firsts have involved very complex aspects that are without precedent.
By way of example, we have advised and represented clients in relation to every class action in South Africa to date.
Although the matters we deal with vary in size, complexity and risk profile, we are primarily recognised as lead attorneys in large and complex matters.
We have the unique advantage, as part of Africa’s largest law firm, of being able to harness the expertise of more than 600 practitioners throughout the continent. ENSafrica has a significant breadth and depth of experience and specialist expertise that spans all commercial areas of law, tax, forensics and IP.
As such, we regularly partner with specialists across the firm, meaning that we are able to assist with all aspects of all matters across all sectors in all African jurisdictions, ensuring that your legal requirements are handled quickly and seamlessly.
