ENSafrica has established offices and a growing footprint throughout Africa. Its offering to clients is unique, in that it is focused on Africa, and its offices do not operate through a network, nor an alliance, nor a “Swiss Verein”, but as one firm | one team with one brand, made up of people in Africa, working for Africa.
As a law firm based in Africa, ENSafrica has easy access to clients and their markets, and understands the many political, cultural, linguistic and regulatory contexts of African countries.
Whether dealing with the complexity of a multi-jurisdictional project, or the establishment of a start-up business in one African country, ENSafrica’s localised experience and expertise ensures that clients obtain the benefit of scale and scope when doing business in Africa...
