ENSafrica commended for its Africa-wide expertise

ENSafrica is delighted to have been recognised for its Africa-wide property and construction, and banking, finance and restructuring expertise at the 2017 African Legal Awards.

We thank you for your support and for continuing to entrust us with your most complex, high-value matters. Without you, this recognition simply would not have been possible. 

“It is in executing such mandates that we are able to create tailor-made teams of experts that cut across disciplines and jurisdictions to best meet the individual needs of each of our clients, and develop innovative solutions worthy of such recognition,” said ENSafrica chief executive, Mzi Mgudlwa.

The firm was awarded Property and Construction Team of the Year for its leading role in advising a foreign client on a highly complex asset sale involving 50 properties in different stages of development, which was further complicated by some of the properties being situated in potentially environmentally hazardous areas. 

ENSafrica’s multidisciplinary team, which included members from the firm’s property/real estate, corporate commercial, tax, competition and environmental law departments, as well as the firm’s Asia practice group, was commended for its innovative approach to the matter and for overcoming the geographic, cultural and environmental challenges presented by the transaction.

ENSafrica was also highly commended in the Banking, Finance and Restructuring Team of the Year category for its role in a ZAR7.8-billion transaction that transformed a financially distressed company through an innovative and responsive restructuring process. The transaction spanned Botswana, Lesotho, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia, Zimbabwe and the United Kingdom, and was executed by a specialist multidisciplinary ENSafrica team.

The African Legal Awards recognise exceptional achievement in Africa’s legal community. The awards are hosted by Legal Week and the Corporate Counsel Association of South Africa and are judged by an independent panel of senior and innovative individuals in the sector.
