ENSafrica’s dedicated shipping, ports and logistics team focuses on avoiding and minimising loss encountered in the business of shipping.
Where loss is inevitable, we aid in the recovery of the loss and do so in the most commercially sensible and effective way possible.
Our key differentiator is our ever-growing presence in African harbours (including the major ports of Accra, Cape Town, Dar es Salaam, Durban, Port Louis and Walvis Bay), meaning that we are able to assist you in a range of matters in and around Africa’s waters.
We are able to provide you with a comprehensive casualty response following incidents of collision, grounding, sinking, fire and explosion, pollution, loss of cargo, and damage to cargo, and we are also able to facilitate matters concerning salvage and entry into bays and ports of vessels in distress, as a result of our relationships with the relevant role players.
Our clients include Protection and Indemnity (P&I) clubs and liner clients, and we act regularly for fishing majors.
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.
