‘I have known of the Eldib & Co team for many years and have instructed them while at my previous firms, and also my current firm. In a jurisdiction where it can often be difficult to find appropriate counsel for contentious matters, we have found it very easy to work with the Eldib team. Our decision to instruct Eldib for a series of contentious matters, in place of the existing Egyptian counsel, has been one that has been well-rewarded by successful outcomes. Overall, the focus on client needs and with a commercial view as to the budgetary and time pressures that brand owners face has meant that Eldib stand out.’

‘Dina Eldib has been excellent. I have found her to be very commercially focused and with a view to client service. In recent matters, where we have instructed Dina to take over proceedings from the existing Egyptian counsel, we have found the service to be second to none.’
