Getting The Deal Through


“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 whilst retaining a uniquely African focus. 

ENSafrica's key differentiator in the market is that it operates as one firm across Africa. All of its offices are fully integrated and work as one team. This means clients are assured of a consistent and high-quality offering and a level of service they would expect when dealing with a world-class law firm.

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, resulting in fast turnaround times, and an extremely cost-effective offering.

The firm also has in-house English law, French law and OHADA law (the legal system used for business in 17 countries in West and Central Africa) capability, as well as Portuguese-speaking lawyers.

ENSafrica has a dedicated China practice group (with Mandarin and Cantonese-speaking practitioners) and a focused India practice group.

Through the financial services centre of Mauritius, ENSafrica offers a unique possibility to integrate all aspects of structuring a client’s investment.”
