Firm Overview
Founded almost two decades ago, Itkan Law Firm has accomplished significant achievements, regardless of the hardships its unstable environment procured. Despite its traditional surroundings, Itkan has efficiently acclimated itself with digital platforms in its management and services. Itkan introduced an example of corporate law firms to Libya, where most law firms are one-man-show or family-governed law firms. It also introduced the concept of equity shares and pro bono plans without deterring its triumph in any way. Itkan adhered to the international standards of practice shown in the rapid growth of the client’s list. This list, consisting of either new or returning multinational corporations/law firms, signifies clients’ satisfaction,

The team has accumulated expertise through their drive and dedication towards their clients and the firm. Thus, the successful cases count went through the roof. Multinational transactions, litigation, and regulatory matters played a part in this. Itkan is a nationwide law firm headquartered in Tripoli, with an office in Benghazi.
