There have been significant changes to the Mauritian legal landscape since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic especially in the area of the emerging technologies and cyberspace, the latest of which is the Virtual Assets and Initial Token Offering Act 2021. As it is customary at this time of the year, the preparations and discussions for the National Budget 2022-2023 have begun and we hope to share insights on incentives to further boost our international financial centre once these are known.

As we have all adapted to the new normal work culture of blending work from home and physical attendance at the office, the Mauritius office has promoted a member of the team to a senior position and injected new blood into the team. I am thus delighted to announce the promotion of Muhammad Aadil Koomar to the position of Counsel. The Appleby Mauritius office has also welcomed the following legal practitioners after they were admitted by the Supreme Court of Mauritius: Vaishali Damonaiko, Abdal Aumeer and Dylan Mannikum who successfully completed their pupillage with ourselves and, Suhaylah Juman who was a recipient of the Appleby Legal Education Scholarship.

This comes at a particularly interesting time, as the Mauritian legal landscape is steadily growing in line with global developments and we continue to progress in matters of Government, immigration, legislative and economic development, making the jurisdiction a more attractive place to do business.

We hope you find the below update informative and interesting. If you have any questions or comments, please contact our team or your usual Appleby representative.
