Africa plays a large part in our firm’s long term strategy. Due to our long-term presence in the MENA region, we have been able to support our clients with their operations across multiple African jurisdictions. By being able to leverage the expertise of our multi-jurisdictionally qualified lawyers who are able to deliver our full service capabilities, we are able to ensure all of clients’ legal requirements are being met wherever they choose to operate and expand their businesses.

We made the first step in building our business and serving our clients in Africa with the opening of an office in Egypt in 2015 and have continued to develop our networks and contacts in Africa since then. We know the importance of working together with local law firms in the various African jurisdictions and how Al Tamimi & Company can add true value to clients investing in the continent, utilising the strong know-how and expertise of our team, alongside our network of ‘best friend’ firms.

Our long-standing presence in North Africa has allowed us to demonstrate our value for many clients in the country. Nour & Partners (in association with Al Tamimi & Company) offers a comprehensive range of legal services for those with business dealings in Egypt and wider region, with two offices in Egypt; Cairo and Port Said.

With a team of 40 fee earners, and growing, we have a comprehensive team of legal experts, who have an in-depth knowledge of the Egyptian legal system and an extensive understanding of the country’s culture and business practices. Our team of lawyers advise national and international clients on a variety of complex transactions. Additionally, our Egypt team has extensive regulatory experience, assisting clients through all stages of the regulatory process and maintains excellent ties with the industry and regulators.

Beyond Egypt, our business and regional footprint continues to grow, and we seek to expand further in line with our commitment to meet the needs of clients doing business across the MENA region.

Our law firm network

In addition to our physical presence in Egypt, for those jurisdictions where we currently do not have offices we are still able to support our clients throughout Africa due to our strong ties with leading local law firms within the region. We work in collaboration with some of the largest full service firms within Africa, tapping in to their unrivalled knowledge of their local legal systems and combine it with our world-class expertise to seamlessly support our clients and meet their legal requirements.
