ENSafrica’s dedicated Africa regulatory and business intelligence team specialises in providing advice on investment, operations and business regulations to large multinationals expanding into Africa and co-ordinating multi-jurisdictional assignments across the continent.
No matter where on the continent you choose to do business, we can advise you on country risk profiles, tax and regulatory requirements, and the in-country application of legislative provisions.
Our key differentiator is our practical experience working on the ground. We also have an extensive network of reputable correspondent firms with whom we have built long-standing relationships, enabling us to provide seamless practical advice and assistance across Africa.
Because we understand the legal, regulatory and economic context of doing business in Africa, against the background of increased growth and development across the continent, we are able to guide you through any challenges which your business may face.
