In today's competitive global market, to run a successful business it is important to have a business partner who understands the importance of:

- fast turnaround times
- cost-effective solutions
- differentiation
- limited risk

While Africa provides potential for growth, predicting in-country, or even regional challenges, and capitalising on the right opportunities for your business, is complex.

With over 600 practitioners and more than 200 years of experience, ENSafrica is Africa's largest law firm.

We provide legal and tax services across sub-Saharan Africa and are committed to ensuring work is done in the manner that best suits your risk profile, preferences and pricing structures.

It matters to us whether you achieve your business goals and we will find ways to ensure you do.

In today's world, changing economic, political, technological, environmental, cultural and social climates are directly impacting target markets at a pace previously unknown. For a business to remain relevant, it requires know-how that spans various specialist areas.

Our specialist divisions include Africa regulatory and business intelligence, Asia, tax and IP. In addition, our artificial intelligence division is able to provide you with in-depth know-how, be it for purposes of corporate governance and information protection, due-diligence, e-discovery, data analytics and/or market understanding.
