Local expertise

Our Cairo office offers a range of legal services with a specific focus on M&A, Banking & Finance and Capital Markets. We are ranked one of the best law firms in Egypt in these areas, and our practical, tech-savvy approach to working with clients is fundamental to our success.

With the recent rise in cross-border transactions in Africa, our Antitrust & Competition Group has become even more crucial to clients as they apply for clearance for transactions across multiple jurisdictions and need help responding to dawn raids and cartel investigations.

With lawyers fluent in both English and Arabic, we prepare standard international commercial agreements in either language, including commercial leases and cooperation agreements. In addition to offering Intellectual Property registration and enforcement services, we understand the intricacies of Egypt's market for counterfeit products and have strong relationships with the local police and customs agents to aid in enforcement.
