TMI AND MAURITIUS

 

Mauritius is a beautiful and diverse nation, with a thriving legal system that combines elements of the French Civil Code, the common law of England and Wales, and laws passed by the Mauritian Parliament. Increasingly, companies and individuals are choosing to establish themselves in Mauritius, because of the excellent opportunities it offers for investment and trade. The Mauritian financial and construction sectors have enjoyed unprecedented growth in recent years and successive governments have demonstrated their support for international business and investment by providing significant tax incentives. Mauritius’s geographic location and its economic and political stability make it the ideal place from which to conduct business and investment in Africa, the Middle-East, and Asia.

However, navigating Mauritius’s complex legal system is time-consuming and difficult, and can involve significant costs and risks for those unfamiliar with the challenges it brings. Organisations and individuals seeking to carry out business in Mauritius must be confident not only that the advice and representation they receive meets the highest global standards, but also that it is based on a comprehensive understanding of both the local legal framework and the international backdrop.

The TMI panel includes not only first-class international lawyers, but also Mauritian solicitors and barristers. Working closely together, TMI’s lawyers have provided advice to the Government of Mauritius for many years, and have appeared in numerous cases in the Privy Council of the United Kingdom, the highest appeal court for Mauritian matters. Because of this experience, TMI offers clients something they cannot get from other firms: an international standard of legal services with an unrivalled understanding of the Mauritian legal, political, and cultural spheres at all levels. As a result, TMI’s clients can be confident that they will receive easily comprehensible, commercially sound, dependable advice and representation, regardless of the law and practice involved.
