Cape Town is home to a number of large financial institutions and insurers and, as the centre where many industry players in Africa house their headquarters, it is also an important hub to the African continent.
Carey Olsen in Cape Town
Our Cape Town office is a key component of Carey Olsen's work in Africa much of which is linked to offshore jurisdictions such as the British Virgin Islands (BVI) and Jersey.
In 2013 we became the first offshore law firm to establish an office in Cape Town. Through this office our legal team is well positioned to provide clients based in Africa with direct access to our offshore legal services. Clients instruct us on corporate, finance, investment funds, mergers and acquisitions, oil and gas, mining and infrastructure and renewable energy transactions. Our local office acts as a convenient liaison point for our other offshore locations in the BVI, Cayman Islands, Guernsey and Jersey.
