Founding Partners

Christian and Philip met when studying law at Durham back in 2001. Since then, both have married Mauritians and have developed a deep love for the island. Both are qualified lawyers in England and Wales, and have amassed a network of links in Mauritius. They wanted to create an advisory company that could be the conduit for foreign business coming into Africa via Mauritius. They sensed there was a need for reliable companies to be on the ground here guiding those foreign to the jurisdiction along the right path, so as to avoid untrustworthy parties and being overcharged, and instead utilize all of the many positives that the Mauritian jurisdiction can bring to their business.
