The firm: With a century of experience since its establishment in 1912, the firm has achieved a record of success and growth that today makes it the longest-established firm and one of the leading firms in Egypt and the Middle East. With over 70 lawyers, counselors and paralegals, including 11 partners and a support staff of over 80 qualified professionals, the firm provides first-rate quality legal services to a broad base of multinational, regional and premium local clients through its offices in Cairo and Alexandria.

The firm is consistently ranked as a top-tier firm across almost all practice areas by the internationally recognised legal ranking organisations.

The firm strives to provide personalised and efficient quality services across a broad spectrum of practice, including anti-dumping and trade disputes, antitrust and competition, arbitration, aviation, banking and financial institutions, capital markets, corporate, commercial, agency and distribution, intellectual property, insurance, labour and employment, litigation, manufacturing, mergers and acquisitions, oil and gas, privatization, projects and construction, real estate, tax, telecommunications and information technology, and tourism, hotels, travel and services.

The firm has been involved for decades in some of the most significant transactions taking place in the region, including many of the major mergers and acquisitions executed in Egypt on behalf of buyers, sellers and in certain cases, as transaction counsel. The firm’s tourism group participated in drafting and/or reviewing, amending and negotiating numerous hotel management and related agreements in Egypt, whether acting on behalf of owners or management companies.

The firm prides itself on having a very high success rate in both its litigation and arbitration work. The firm obtained favorable judgments in a number of important litigation cases.

Shalakany represents both domestic and international corporations from a broad spectrum of industries. The firm is a ‘full-service’ law firm that offers a broad range of legal services to its clients. The firm’s client base includes leading international, US and UK corporations, financial institutions, trade associations and foundations with an interest in cross-border operations. A significant portion of the firm’s clientele is represented by non-Egyptian corporations and institutions requiring advice on a full range of legal issues related to their operations or international transactions within the Egyptian and UAE jurisdictions.
