Alliott Global Alliance (‘AGA’), one of the world’s largest multidisciplinary alliances of professional services firms, has expanded its legal membership in Africa through the appointment of business law firm Lex Frontier in Mauritius.
This exciting development gives the alliance dual representation in the country alongside accounting firm member Alliott Mauritius.
Established in 2019 by Ashveen Gopee, who previously worked on corporate transactions for top tier law firms in Mauritius, Lex Frontier offers expert advice in corporate and commercial, fintech and ecommerce, employment and intellectual property law across the financial, private equity, energy, and construction sectors, plus several emerging sectors such as fintech, e-business, payment gateways and crypto currency. The firm also recently advised on the setting up a crypto trading platform, Digital Ledger Technology (DLT) and Ashveen is a frequent author of articles on this topic.
“We are excited that our firm has been admitted as the exclusive law firm member of Alliott Global Alliance in Mauritius. We are totally aligned with AGA, in that all at Lex Frontier are driven by a common culture and vision for client centric excellence and can now benefit from working with dynamic and like-minded colleagues who have an international outlook and a focus on innovative and client-oriented service delivery.
“With the help of our fellow members, we can now assist those clients with interests outside of the region including those with business interests further across Africa, in Asia and Europe.
“Likewise, because of the close ties Mauritius has with various jurisdictions including in Africa, China, India and Europe, and the various trade agreements the region has in place, we can offer our members mutual support.”
Alliott Global Alliance COO Giles Brake adds:
“With financial services and ICT sectors that are among Africa’s strongest, full embrace of the global digital economy and a business-friendly environment, we needed to appoint a law firm that could ensure full utilisation of Mauritius’ competitive advantages by our member firms and their international clients. Although a relatively young firm, the Lex Frontier team bring with them experience and innovation in their approach, practice organisation and plans for strategic growth. We offer a warm welcome to Ashveen and the team at Lex Frontier.”
The alliance now has a presence in the following African countries: Cameroon, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mauritius, Morocco, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa, Tunisia, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
