Abdou Law Firm logo

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.
