ENSafrica is the oldest and largest law firm in Mauritius, having its roots in 1828.
Its unparalleled, on-the-ground, in-depth knowledge of the Mauritian culture, legal market and experience, as well as its reach across the African continent on a fully integrated basis, sets ENSafrica apart and is one of the reasons why it is sought out by international investors, national and international corporations, financial institutions, and government and regulatory bodies.
Mauritius, being at the centre of the golden triangle between Africa, China and India, has expertise in large, complex, cross-border mandates, corporate structuring and the establishment of investment vehicles, as well as international litigation and insolvencies that span multiple countries across Africa and the Indian Ocean rim countries.
We provide a one-stop shop and a full circle offering with a comprehensive array of services. As the oldest and leading law firm on the island, we are the standing legal advisers to many of the Mauritian conglomerates and listed companies and we appear for many of the large Mauritian businesses. Our practice covers a broad range of matters, ranging from financial, banking, commercial, insurance and capital markets to litigation, arbitration, employment, IP and insolvency.
Mauritius is ideally located for investment and development in Africa and is also an important strategic partner for African-Asian-Indian trade and business development into, and out of, the continent which is made through the Mauritius International Financial Centre (IFC).
We have been an active player in the financial services sector of Mauritius since its inception in 1992, being the very first law firm to obtain a Management Company licence from the Financial Services Commission (FSC). Our market-leading fiduciary, secretarial and trust expertise, as well as dedicated IP and insolvency specialised services, is another differentiator on the domestic market.
We also have the unique advantage, as part of Africa’s largest law firm, of being able to harness the expertise of more than 600 practitioners throughout the continent. ENSafrica has a significant breadth and depth of experience and specialist expertise that spans all commercial areas of law, tax, forensics, fiduciary and trust services and IP.
