TESTIMONIAL: "Andersen Egypt Law Firm represented us in a suit against a large company. We were very satisfied with the results. Our settlement was much better than we expected and was completed in a timely manner. The lawyers and staff stayed in close contact with us and were friendly, respectful and tireless in their efforts. We are thankful that we selected Andersen Egypt to represent us and would highly recommend them."

TESTIMONIAL: “I have worked with Maher Iskander in the past and have no hesitation recommending him for your legal services. Maher is professional, competent, and possesses the highest legal ethics of any attorney in Cairo. Whether you have a major or minor legal problem, the Andersen Egypt law firm will treat your case with the utmost attention that you deserve and expect in quality legal representation.”

TESTIMONIAL: “I want to commend you on the excellent legal services you provided in connection with our recent venture capital financing transaction. You have all the attributes I expect in a good law firm: knowledge and seasoned experience, professionalism, integrity, strategic thinking, enthusiasm, and responsiveness. You were as experienced and knowledgeable as the two large national law firms working on this transaction for the other parties, and provided service at a level at least equal to theirs (though at a more favorable rate).

TESTIMONIAL: “I would like to express my appreciation for your advice and assistance during the many projects that we worked on together. It was always a great comfort to me to know I could rely on your legal and business judgment during our long association whether the transaction was an acquisition, a joint venture or some other complex commercial deal. I especially valued your attention to detail and ability to draft the precise legal documents necessary to capture the exact terms of the transaction that we were working on at the time. “.

TESTIMONIAL: “Although I am a very experienced owner and manager of our company, the process of selling is something I have only done once, and it was great to have your guidance throughout every step of a very challenging and stressful experience. Thanks for your calm encouragement when it was most needed. Your ability to keep the process moving and respond so quickly to each bump in the road was truly an advantage for our owners, and I told our outside shareholders how truly fortunate we were to have you on our side”

TESTIMONIAL: “Thank you for your professional services. You have provided outstanding legal counsel… We have searched a long time to find an attorney that is trustworthy and dependable. We are very pleased to have your services. Through our entire business relationship you have been responsive and detail oriented which has allowed us to stay focused on our business and not getting distracted with legal details.”
