Biography

Ahmed has over 10 years of post-qualification experience working on a wide range of contentious commercial matters, having practiced in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia and now in the UAE. Ahmed has developed a considerable track record of trying and winning complex cases and cross-border disputes in different jurisdictions throughout the MENA region.

Ahmed has a considerable experience in arbitration and litigation in the areas of construction, energy, insurance, tax, intellectual property, competition, antidumping and safeguard measures. He has served as counsel in arbitrations conducted under most major institutional rules including ICSID, ICC, LCIA, CRCICA, UNCITRAL, and DIAC.

Ahmed spent much of 2019 acting for VEON on one of the largest tax settlements in the Egyptian history for USD 136 million and settling a tax-litigation portfolio involving USD 300 million. He also acted in 2016 for Misr Insurance in a USD 184 million insurance claim in relation to three policies covering the gas pipelines extended between Egypt and Israel and has successfully secured favorable judgments.

Prior to joining AlTamimi & Co. in 2020, Ahmed used to work with a leading non-affiliated law firm in Cairo and had also worked with a top tier Libyan law firm associated with DENTONS in Tripoli. He has had the experience of working with the most leading regional IP firm in the Middle East.

Ahmed has many publications on the Egyptian law, including a comprehensive commentary on the Egyptian Arbitration Law published in late 2019 with LexisNexis, and he is a co-author of a cross-jurisdictional analysis of the conflicts between local laws in the MENA region and the prevailing institutional rules that has been published in 2014 with The Journal of the Dispute Resolution Section of the International Bar Association (IBA).
