The firm’s renowned flagship practice is international commercial and investment treaty arbitration, focusing on high-value claims. The firm is famous for its unparalleled multinational expertise, strong business sense, superior strategy, and remarkable track record of maximising clients’ results. The firm also provides highend transactional and corporate services to its clients across various critical industries, including construction, mega-projects, fin-tech, and structuring and restructuring transactions.

As Egypt and the MENA region’s premier international arbitration practice, the firm represents local and foreign investors in unquestionably some of the largest and most significant investment treaty cases and commercial claims involving Egyptian or MENA parties. The firm handles major local and international disputes and advises some of the world’s leading corporations and high-net worth families across the MENA region.

The firm’s global outreach is second to none in the region. The firm represents its clients in arbitral proceedings and disputes in four continents. Geographical boundaries are less relevant by the day.
