NAL & Partners is a full service law firm in Egypt with affiliated IP and law firms in Europe, the Middle East, and the United States. We are the leading law firm in the area of intellectual property protection, portfolio management, licensing and litigation and have been recognized by The Legal 500 as a first tier law firm in intellectual property for 2012, 2013, and 2014. NAL has also won the Corporate International Global Award for IP Litigation Firm of the Year (2017).

Our areas of expertise include high tech business establishment and restructuring, corporate management, finance and commercial transactions, environmental law and all related litigation. Our managing partner is also renowned for her extensive experience in due diligence, financing and mergers and acquisitions transactions. She worked with her team on most of the major deals in Egypt in the past ten years. This is why NAL gained the trust of Al Watany Bank and Egyptian Banks Company, as well as the banks we have represented in the past including Banque Misr, Arab African International Bank and others. Our team of transactional, corporate, intellectual property, and litigation lawyers has over 60 years of combined experience and an excellent record in achieving superior results.

Our current clients include Al Marai, Arabian Cement Company, AUC, Beyti, Cavium Networks USA, EVA Pharma, Merck Sharpe & Dohme, Mobinil, PepsiCo Inc., and SC Johnson.

We come from major law firms where both lawyers and clients were frustrated with the lack of a systemized approach to the provision of legal services. Clients suffered inconsistency in work quality, extensive delays, and lack of accountability as it was never clear who was responsible for work and client management. To overcome the pitfalls of most law firms in Egypt, we set up NAL & Partners using a world class system specifically made for law firms to manage our work. Our online portfolio and case management system provides clients with instant access to their cases, projects, intellectual property
registrations, applications, and contracts. We provide high quality professional service through our quality control process and periodic client satisfaction reviews
