The article focuses on various issues concerning law reforms in Mauritius. According to the author, for the past few years, Mauritius has been making a determined effort to establish itself as an offshore financial services centre with unique geographical, cultural and linguistic links to Europe, the Indian subcontinent and the Far East. Mauritius law firms active in the offshore market claim that the country's jurisdiction urgently needs reform of the legal profession to allow access to international firms. A number of Mauritius lawyers whose practices are focused primarily on offshore business say that growth will be constrained so long as international law firms are unable to establish a presence on the island.
