Bedell Cristin (Mauritius) Partnership* will be headed by Yuvraj Juwaheer and will specialise in providing legal advice in relation to corporate, funds, banking and structured finance and trust work, particularly with a focus on the markets in India, Africa and the Far East.

Yuvraj Juwaheer has over 15 years’ experience in the global business sector. He was a member of the Mauritian government steering committee set up in 2004 to consider opening the island to international law firms, and was an independent director on the board of a number of Indian funds.

He and his team will complement their local knowledge by drawing on the wider resources of Bedell Group – which is based in key locations worldwide.

“We have had an expanding business in the East for some years and City law firms and key intermediaries have shown a keen interest in the services we will be able to offer from Mauritius,” comments Richard Gerwat, Managing Partner of Bedell Group. “The island benefits from many double tax treaties and is a politically stable base through which investments into India, China and South Africa can be made”.

Bedell Group Partner Mark Helyar adds, “The Mauritius office provides an exciting platform for our clients to invest in the markets of South Africa, India and the Far East. We are very pleased to be working with Yuvraj who has extensive experience and strong local network to provide real value to our clients and our business.”
