Africa provides unique challenges and endless opportunities for investment and business development. This is especially true following the recent first-world economic crisis and its implications for global economies. However, doing business in Africa requires a different skill-set and approach. For instance, transactions may involve parties operating out of and in different countries each having varying, and sometimes conflicting, legal, regulatory and taxation requirements. Businesses therefore need legal counsel with geographical capability, as well as substantive local, on the ground, expertise. Advice developed through comprehensive knowledge, background and experience of Africa is critical to the long term success of any business proposition. ENSafrica is able to offer these through our established structures ensuring an outstanding product offering for our clients.
ENSafrica is renowned for identifying opportunities both locally and internationally and, having recognised the potential within Africa, the firm has focused on expanding the depth and breadth of our existing services to satisfy local and international clients and their requirements for Pan-African advisory mandates.
