Excerpt of IFLR1000 Review
“Juristconsult Chambers is a top tier firm in Mauritius, active in areas of financial and corporate commercial law including corporate finance, M&A and joint ventures. The firm is the Mauritian member of the DLA Piper Africa Group, giving it access to a large pan-African referral network, which means that it can offer clients the services of the wider firm’s multiple global offices. As well as Mauritius, the firm operates in Madagascar, Seychelles and Reunion.
Juristconsult Chambers have been able to deliver accurately and rapidly. This has greatly helped as often there are urgent matters that need to be addressed without delay. The team is very accessible,” says one client from a local business group, while a partner from an international law firm commends the firm for its “good knowledge of the local market, and excellent turn-around time”. Shalinee Dreepaul-Halkhoree is well respected, “a very skilled lawyer with the ability to make the most complex of matters very simple to understand,” says one.
In banking and finance a highlight transaction saw the firm assist Credit Suisse and Citibank in connection with the addition of a subsidiary to the Aricent Group, and the subsequent necessary documentation necessary to enter them into existing security agreements.
The majority of the remainder of the firm’s highlight deals are confidential, but, working for Rand Merchant Bank, the firm acted on a bridge loan facility extended to, and secured by, a Mauritian company.”
