Firm Overview:
Youssef & Partners is a full-service, GAR 100 firm with a cosmopolitan and international outlook, exercising regional influence and delivering client services to truly global standards. The firm’s renowned flagship practice is international commercial and treaty arbitration with a focus on complex and high-value disputes. Its unparalleled multinational expertise, strong business sense, superior strategy, and remarkable track record maximises clients’ results. As of May 2019, the firm has formally entered the market for corporate and M&A, and provides high-end transactional and corporate services to its clients across a range of key industries, including construction, projects, fin-tech, and structuring and restructuring transactions. As Egypt’s premier international arbitration practice, the firm focuses on representing local and foreign investors in what are unquestionably the largest and most significant investment treaty and commercial cases involving Egyptian parties. Located in Cairo, Youssef & Partners handles major local and international disputes and advises some of the world’s leading corporations across the MENA region. The firm’s global outreach is second to none in the region; it is involved in arbitral or court proceedings in four continents. Geographical boundaries are less relevant by the day, and the firm’s core belief is that clients should not have to suffer less than state-of-the-art lawyering and counsel services simply because they do business in emerging or foreign markets. The firm works to win, and its reputation in the local and international markets is that it does. Youssef & Partners focuses on what matters most to clients and the firm makes it happen.
