In addition to our transactional work we provide a full range of corporate advisory services from assisting with corporate governance to regulatory compliance.

Our knowledge of the local market enables us to advise on taxation issues including tax residency and the application of Double Taxation Avoidance Agreements, which is an essential component for investors coming to Mauritius. We have particular expertise on mergers and acquisitions, private equity and hedge funds. Our team has also facilitated the listing of entities on the Stock Exchange of Mauritius including the drafting and reviewing of all related documents.

Our close working relationship with a network of law firms in the neighbouring islands of Seychelles, Madagascar & Reunion and worldwide, enables us to better handle cross border transactions.

We adopt a practical and commercial approach to every transaction thus safeguarding every aspect of our client’s business.
