A top choice firm for finance’, Ghellal & Mekerba is widely lauded for its ‘sound knowledge of both transactional and regulatory law’.

It also houses a standalone economic law group, which focuses on financial and regulatory law.

Banking and finance matters are a mainstay at Bouchaib Law Firm. The firm has a solid regulatory practice and recently advised several development finance institutions on aspects of the Algerian regulatory framework. Recent transactions include acting for a foreign client on the financing of a desalination plant.

Responsive, experienced and thorough’, Bourabiat Associés is an ‘international-standard firm’. Managing partner Foued Bourabiat recently advised a leading maritime company on its restructuring. Project finance is another focus area.

At CMS, managing partner Samir Sayah advised a major multinational during a recapitalisation transaction.
