According to the United Nations, agricultural production is one of the most important economic sectors in Africa. With the population of Africa set to double to 2.5 billion by 2050, agricultural produce will play an increasingly important role in feeding the continent.
We understand that as your agribusiness expands through acquisitions, financing arrangements, intellectual property, trade arrangements and joint ventures, you will encounter many opportunities and challenges, including production, agri-tech, food safety, weather, water, finance, insurance and labour.
At ENSafrica, we are passionate about agribusiness in Africa and we recognise its importance for aspects such as food security and GDP enhancement. We have a deep understanding of the business and legal intricacies faced daily by agribusiness companies because we have a strong track record of working with top clients across Africa to overcome these complex hurdles.
With a wealth of expertise across all relevant areas of law, we can help you to find simple, creative and practical solutions in response to legal, regulatory, tax, exchange control and commercial challenges affecting your business.
We have the unique advantage, as Africa’s largest law firm, of being able to harness the expertise of more than 600 practitioners throughout the continent. We have a significant breadth and depth of experience and specialist expertise that spans all commercial areas of law, tax, forensics and IP.
