Professionals from Mauritius working in London recently gathered at a reception hosted by award-winning law firm Mackrell Turner Garrett.
Held at the firm’s offices in Savoy Hill, the event gave guests the chance to mingle and learn more about the practices’ specialism in Mauritian affairs.
Other companies represented on the night included Barclays, HSBC, ABAX, John Charcol Mortgages, Brebners, Berley, HW Fisher & Company, Barnes Roffe and Audensa Financial, who each shared their international expertise with those in attendance.
The firm’s own experience in the region is thanks to Manisha Hurchurn, a native Mauritian, who works as a solicitor in Mackrell Turner Garrett’s Family Law department.
Speaking about the event, Manisha said: “London is full of influential Mauritians and is a key area of interest for businesses located in the region.
“This event brought all of these people and businesses together to create a stronger bond amongst the community within the Capital.
“I am glad as hosts of this event that we were able to share our expertise with those in attendance and bring people closer together.”
Those who attended the event said it was a “great evening and a wonderful initiative” which had done a lot to “strengthen the Mauritian professional network and support each other”.
Nigel Rowley, Managing Partner at Mackrell Turner Garrett, said: “The Mauritian community in the UK is thriving, so it is only right that we bring them together to learn more about their areas of interest and expertise and conversely they are able to learn more about our specialisms.
“This event was fantastic and I hope that from it a number of lasting bonds are formed between our firm and other businesses.”
