Conyers Dill & Pearman is pleased to sponsor STEP Arabia's Conference "Mauritius Foundation Presentation - An Update".
Conyers' Stephen Scali will be speaking about the Mauritius foundation, which was provided for by the Foundations Act 2012. He will explain its key features, the process of registration and administration, as well as its appeal for MENA-based clients and advisors. The Mauritius foundation is a legal entity with hybrid features of a company and a trust, and we will see how it may be used for a variety of non-charitable and/or charitable activities. The main parties to the foundation – notably the founder, beneficiary and protector – will be discussed, as will the role of the foundation’s Council in administering the property and carrying out the objects of the foundation. Stephen will also cover the Foundation’s main documentation (the Charter and Articles).
Kerri Lefebvre and Dennis Ryan of Conyers Dubai office will also attend the conference.
