Overview

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.
