Our partners provide personalized services across four core practice areas
Our highly qualified and experienced partners personally provide counsel to clients who engage on large, sophisticated transactions — from national megaprojects, cross-border acquisitions and regulatory affairs to securitized offerings, syndicated facilities, and complex litigation and arbitration cases.
Who are we?
ALC is a four-person partnership specializing in complex financial and commercial transactions. Our partners provide personalized services to select local and foreign clients in Egypt and the Middle East, supported by 15 experienced lawyers.
We have particular expertise in providing counsel to corporations and high-net-worth individuals (HNWI) engaging in sophisticated transactions.
Since 2003, our partners have advised clients on national landmark transactions in diverse sectors such as industry & manufacturing, infrastructure, energy, refining, oil & gas, healthcare & pharmaceuticals, real estate, education, commercial agencies & distribution, tourism, media, financial institutions, retail & consumer goods, agriculture, food, transport, and private equity.
Serving clients across industries and borders
We help clients close transactions, raise or issue finance, interface with regulators, and engage in both litigation and arbitration. We work solely on a transaction-specific basis and have proven track records working with major national and global corporations and institutions.
A proven track record
Our transactional track record includes advising on Egypt’s first reserve base lending facility, the first securitized bond on the Egyptian market and Africa’s largest project finance deal in 2012 (a hydro-cracking petroleum refinery in greater Cairo). As a fully independent firm, we take great pride in the fact that the majority of our clients are referrals from other clients and top tier international law firms.
