Story

in Africa | for Africa
Introduction

ENSafrica is Africa’s largest law firm with over 600 practitioners and was established over 100 years ago.

The firm has a significant breadth and depth of experience and specialist expertise that spans all commercial areas of law, tax, forensics and IP and benchmarks itself according to international standards while retaining a uniquely African focus.  

why choose us?

The firm offers clients high-quality know-how that covers the:

  • legal, IP and tax systems that relate to each country on the continent
  • practical in-country application of legislative provisions
  • country and regional business investment, risk and economic profiles
  • local cultural and social customs across Africa

one firm | one team

ENSafrica's key differentiator in the market is that it operates as one firm across Africa.  The firm does not collaborate by means of a network, an alliance nor as a “Swiss Verein” across various countries; rather, all of its offices are fully integrated and work as one team.  This means that clients are assured of a consistent and high-quality offering.

At a practice level, the firm has specialised units, each consisting of a number of practitioners who dedicate themselves to building their expertise in a specific area of law, tax, forensics or IP across Africa.  Irrespective of how many business areas a transaction spans, work is done at the right level, by the person most qualified to give the client the best advice. The firm is committed to ensuring clients receive consistent world-class service, fast turnaround times and a cost-effective offering, wherever they choose to do business across Africa..

To the extent that it is required in a transaction, the firm also has in-house English law capability, for Anglophone African countries, as well as practitioners who are qualified to practise French law (relevant in Francophone African countries) and OHADA law (the legal system used for business in 17 countries in West and Central Africa).

The firm’s Portuguese-speaking lawyers are able to assist clients doing business in Lusophone African countries such as Angola and Mozambique.

ENSafrica has a dedicated China practice group (with Mandarin and Cantonese-speaking practitioners) and a focused India practice group, which facilitate China’s and India’s entry and expansion strategy into Africa, respectively.

Through the financial services centre of Mauritius, ENSafrica offers a unique possibility to integrate all aspects of structuring a client’s investment in relation to all areas of law, tax, fiduciary, forensics and IP.  Mauritius is ideally located for investment and development in Africa.  It is also an important strategic partner for African-Asian-Indian trade and business development into, and out of, the continent.
