South Africa: Attorneys From Rex Attorneys Join Forces With ENSafrica In Tanzania
Last Updated: 5 May 2015

We are delighted to announce that ENSafrica, Africa's largest law firm, and the attorneys from one of Tanzania's most prestigious law firms, Rex Attorneys, joined forces on 1 May 2015 to form ENSafrica | Tanzania.

"Our vision is for ENSafrica to be the first fully integrated, world-class African law firm – the legal destination of choice when it comes to doing business in Africa. Launching ENSafrica | Tanzania is part of this vision and we plan to open further offices throughout Africa during the course of the year," said ENSafrica Chief Executive Piet Faber.

Tanzania is an important jurisdiction for those doing business across Africa due to, among others, its stable business environment, its abundance of natural resources and the forecasted growth of its annual GDP over the next five years.

ENSafrica | Tanzania is based in Upanga in the country's commercial capital, Dar es Salaam, and provides a full-service offering, covering a wide range of business areas, including mining; oil and gas; energy; banking and financial services; competition; employment; IP; telecommunications; insolvency; legislative and regulatory regime review; as well as commercial litigation and arbitration.

Rex Attorneys was established on 1 February 2006, following the merger of two of the leading corporate law firms in Tanzania – Maajar, Rwechungura, Nguluma & Makani Advocates and Epitome Advocates. It is regarded as a premier firm and maintains a position of pre-eminence in Tanzania.

Ambassador Mwanaidi Sinare Maajar, a seasoned corporate and mining law practitioner who was previously Tanzania's High Commissioner to the United Kingdom and Tanzania's ambassador to the United States, is the Chair of ENSafrica | Tanzania and Dr Alex Thomas Nguluma, a renowned senior corporate and tax law practitioner, is the Managing Partner.

"The opening of ENSafrica | Tanzania is an exciting step in the Tanzanian legal market," said Ambassador Maajar. "We believe that the combination of our expert knowledge of the local market, and the breadth and depth of experience and specialist expertise which is now available to us across Africa, will provide real value to our clients."

"The launch of ENSafrica | Tanzania has certainly expanded our capability in the country and we are looking forward to offering our clients a new level and depth of legal services spanning all the key corporate areas of law and business," said Dr Nguluma.

ENSafrica now has offices in Burundi, Mauritius, Namibia, Rwanda, South Africa, Tanzania and Uganda, which operate as one firm across Africa, affording our clients a world-class service, fast turnaround times and an extremely cost-effective offering, wherever they choose to do business.
