The Firm

Arab Legal Consultants is a commercial and financial boutique law firm specializing in complex transactions for a select client base. Our business model is unique and simple based on the concept of personalized service: One of four distinguished partners personally takes the lead on each and every case or transactions that we decide to handle.

As an independent firm providing services in English, Arabic and French, we pride ourselves on our transaction-specific approach to business and typically do not enter into retainer relationships. Instead, we prefer to take on cases that are of significant or personal importance to C-suite level executives.

While all of our work is personally undertaken by a partner, we draw on the expertise of 15 associates with backgrounds in litigation and commercial law. We also benefit from the added value of our broad network of consultants who are contacted on an as-needed basis.

Our practice areas

Since our founding in 2003, we have maintained an unwavering dedication to integrity and discretion in the execution of demanding equity and debt capital market transactions, offering our elaborate advisory services to clients involved in intricate deals for loans and facilities, mergers and acquisitions, as well as litigation and arbitration cases.

Our clients

We have a proven track record of advising high-net-worth individuals, corporations and financial institutions in Egypt, the Middle East and beyond in sectors that include industry & manufacturing, infrastructure, energy, refining, oil & gas, healthcare & pharmaceuticals, real estate, education, commercial agency & distribution  tourism, media, financial institutions, retail & consumer goods, agriculture, food, transport, and private equity.

We are also honored to have been chosen by the Egyptian government to provide counsel to various ministries and public entities.

In keeping with our undying commitment to client confidentiality, we do not disclose our client list as a matter of practice, and we assure compliance with our duties to avoid conflicts of interests
