Background

Mauritius has a hybrid legal system derived from both civil and common law traditions. The insolvency framework was revolutionised in 2009, through the implementation of the Insolvency Act.

After these changes, a new restructuring landscape emerged, presenting attractive rescue procedures, such as workouts, voluntary administration, amalgamations, takeovers and compromises.
