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...

Why choose us?
We specialise in labour, employment and related tax legislation and how it impacts on you.
We offer day-to-day advice on employment and related tax issues, whether answering telephonic queries or ongoing "hands-on" help with major initiatives.
We equip you to develop pro-active initiatives and prevention practices to ensure you avoid adverse, unintended consequences and/or negative exposure.
We believe in transferring knowledge to clients. We keep you informed - through seminars, regular newsletters and electronic newsbriefs - about the latest amendments to legislation or changes in the approach of the courts on issues of importance to the HR, financial management, company secretary or risk control function. We run tailor-made training courses to assist our corporate clients in areas such as managing discipline and performance, appearing in the CCMA and chairing disciplinary enquiries. We also support clients who run their own matters in the CCMA in the form of advice on the conduct of the case and/or research to support the argument required.
