Who We Are

Balgobin Chambers, based in the hub of Mauritius’ capital, Port Louis, is both a transactional and litigation set. Our formation was inspired through the Balgobin family’s long established background in law dating back to the 1940s when Ramsoomersing Balgobin, solicitor and Member of Parliament, started a career in the legal field as a sole practitioner. He was closely followed by a second generation which served the country in the judiciary.

The Chambers is now a premium boutique practice comprising of five barristers at law and seven lawyers spread between Balgobin Chambers and PLCJ Ltd, a French law firm located in Tamarin, Mauritius. In our commitment to ensuring local expertise with the highest international standards, the Chambers comprises of lawyers with qualifications and experience from numerous jurisdictions, including the United Kingdom, France, Mauritius and South Africa. The services of our lawyers are often retained by companies and banks that feature amongst the top 100 companies in Mauritius.

The Chambers is headed by our Managing Partner Priscilla Balgobin-Bhoyrul, Barrister at Law called to the Mauritian Bar and to the Bar of England and Wales.

The team at Balgobin Chambers is constantly striving to provide a service that is personal, as well as fresh, dynamic and innovative. Our lawyers provide tailor-made assistance and advice in a discrete, efficient and reliable manner.

Through our collaboration with SPEAK Human Rights & Environmental Initiative, the Chambers provide legal advice and assistance to victims of domestic and/or international human rights violations, and to cases involving domestic and/or international environmental issues.

Balgobin Chambers is ranked amongst the top Mauritian law firms in IFLR1000 for 2015 and Legal500. The Chambers is also the exclusive Mauritius member for the leading international network SCG Legal
