‘We believe that their professionalism, attention to detail and quick response as well as the great customer service provided whether in person or other means of communication is what makes them unique.’

‘We value the customized experience provided to our company as well as the active listening skills of the team. They always make sure they have the information they need to provide tailored solutions for the best interest of our company.’

‘Abdou law firm is unique in two key ways in Libya. The first is integrity, not only on a personal and professional level, but also integrity of legal mindset and values. Abdou Law firm’s associates are both mindful and attentive to the gaps between international and current national/local legal frameworks and norms and are driven by bridging this gap. The second is its pool of connections, clients and associations with the new architecture of public and private enterprises in Libya that have mushroomed since 2011, as opposed to the established status quo enterprises of SOEs, and international oil companies.’

‘I have worked directly with both the Chairman of the Firm Majdi Abdo and the current Managing g Director of the Firm Muhannad Hussein. I have found both to be of exceptional integrity and full transparency throughout our engagement. What made both stand out for me was the willingness to exert the right effort on the political/executive to facilitate changes in the legal frameworks to enable our legal practice and spared no effort to do so any the highest levels.’

‘The team at Abdou Law Firm give huge importance to their clients. They are available at all times whenever we need them and this is what we look for in a law firm. The professionalism shown at Abdou Law Firm and their knowledge is unrivalled. What makes them stand out is their ability to deal with both local and international issues exceptionally.’

‘The client care shown by the team as a whole and their compatibility when working together has been a major factor in their success with us and I am sure with other clients as their reputation precedes them. The wide network which the team has, especially Dr Majdi, has proved valuable when we have faced issues in different governmental departments. One of the main values which makes the Abdou Law firm team stand out is their attention to detail, especially when drafting and reviewing our contracts.’

‘Abdou Law Firm has very good and well trained team. We are quite happy with their team and support.’

‘Abdou Law Firm offers the full suite of legal services. They help us in contractual issues, employment cases, civil cases etc. They are providing services in Arabic as well as in English.’

Abdou Law Firm (ALF) is a leading Libyan law firm with an international outreach. We pride ourselves on maintaining an international standard of service, whilst working tirelessly to serve our clients’ best interests and delivering high quality and added value services.

The Firm provides a complete range of legal services, so our clients can expect a one stop service for most of their legal issues and do not need to resort to more than one firm in search of specific services to meet their wishes. Additionally, at ALF, we cover all aspects of the law and grant efficient and creative solutions to all potential issues. Our clients (whether local or international companies and law firms) doing business in Libya can be confident that we offer the services needed. To date, our experts have provided advisory work for corporate clients on matters such as contract formation, negotiations, international trade, banking regulations, corporate compliance, joint venture agreements, corporate finance arrangements, and commercial contractual relationships (Agent and Distribution agreements). In addition, our experts have facilitated business entrance for many large companies in the Libyan market to enable them to conduct their business in Libya. As we have expanded, so have our clients. Thus, ALF offers comprehensive legal services and covers all aspects of the law.

ALF has been expanding sharply and worked closely with many prestigious clients that have placed their trust in ALF. Examples of such clients are as follows: governmental institutions (e.g., the Ministry of Economy of Libya and the Central Bank of Libya); large international and local corporate clients; embassies; state owned companies; international law firms; and NGOs.

In addition, the ALF team prides itself on its multi-lingual experts being able to provide services in Arabic, English, French and Turkish. Also, through our international network of experts, we work closely with our clients to help them solve problems and create opportunities. Hence, our clients whether Libyan or international are confident that we offer services that are aligned with the highest legal standards.

Furthermore, we are proud to declare that members of the ALF team have played an active role in reforming the legal system related to the Libyan Economy. This is because some members of the ALF team were part of many committees worked on such a reform e.g., the Ministry of Economy committee for the code of conduct (this conduct is binding for all local and foreign companies working in Libya), the Ministry of Economy committee for updating the regulations relating to the establishment of foreign entities in Libya (this regulation set up legal rules for establishing foreign corporate branches, joint venture companies and representative offices for forging companies). As well as this, ALF has worked with governmental bodies to establish and update their internal regulations to make sure they are aligned with best practice and international standards.
