Our partners personally provide counsel to C-suite clients whose engagements largely involve sophisticated transactions — from national megaprojects, cross-border acquisitions and regulatory affairs to securitized offerings, syndicated facilities, and complex litigation and arbitration cases.
Among the sectors in which our partners have extensive experience are energy, oil and gas, tourism, agriculture, food, transport, banking, healthcare and pharmaceuticals, private equity, manufacturing and trade.
Equity, Debt & Banking
Our partners advise both borrowers and lenders on significant and complex banking transactions. Our finance team has extensive experience in advising financial institutions, private equity firms and corporates on many types of domestic and cross border funding arrangements governed by Egyptian law. Our multidisciplinary knowledge and experience allow us to advise clients on all forms and stages of funding arrangements.
Mergers & Acquisitions
ALC partners serve both Egyptian and international investors during full and partial acquisitions of local companies, covering legal due diligence processes, negotiation processes, preceding sale and purchase agreements, as well as the drafting of agreements and other related documents and tender offers. Our M&A practices are the product of the wide range of industries that our partners have had first-hand experience with, as well as the relationships we have developed with some of Egypt's most prominent banks over years of transactions.
ALC has extensive expertise in advising on projects financed by development finance institutions in Egypt. We have provided counsel on several mega construction projects including the Egyptian Refinery Company, the Dairut Power Plant, and Egypt’s mega-construction project for a new capital. ALC assists investors in all stages of their projects starting from the joint venture phase to financing, to EPC and other ancillary contracts. Over the years, ALC has successfully helped a variety of equity firms, financial institutions, and corporates in bridging gaps between local requirements and international standards.
Litigation & Arbitration
We act as mediators in disputes between shareholders, companies, and private sector organizations with their respective government regulators. Our partners are recognized as registered arbitrators by the Cairo Regional Center for International Commercial Arbitration, as each of them has served as both arbitrator and counsel on many cases before. Our proven track record is a testament of our ability to handle complex litigation cases in the Egyptian courtroom and major cases involving the public prosecutor's office.
