They've got a far bigger reach than most other law firms in Africa
Chambers Global Guide 2019

ENSafrica has a dedicated fintech team who are ideally situated to guide you through unchartered territory, including navigating complex regulatory environments for cross-border matters that require innovative solutions.

As fintech continues to disrupt the financial services sector at an unprecedented level, it is not enough for established service providers and start-ups to keep up with the rapid pace of innovation and technological development – they need to remain ahead of the game.

The unlimited potential afforded by this cutting-edge space provides a host of opportunities, but also risks. To fully exploit these opportunities and to proactively and effectively manage these risks requires a combination of specialist legal skills from those who not only understand the nuances of this specialist field, but who also have a deep understanding of your business and its unique requirements.

Our key differentiator is our ability to give you the competitive edge by creating tailor-made teams of multidisciplinary experts, who converge at the intersection of law, technology and financial services, across the African continent.

Our clients include leading African and international banks and corporates, start-ups, investors, insurers, money remitters and credit providers.

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 (in areas such as tax, corporate commercial, employment, and insolvency, business rescue and debt recovery), 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.
