Firm Profile: ENSafrica is Africa’s largest law firm with over 600 practitioners and was established over 100 years ago. The firm has a 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.

why choose us

The firm offers clients country-specific know-how which covers: the continent’s legal, IP and tax systems; business investment, risk and economic profiles; and African cultural and social customs.

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.

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

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 focussed India practice group which facilitates 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 a major gateway of investment into Africa. It is also an important strategic corridor for African-Asian-Indian trade and business development into, and out of, the continent.
