Al Tamimi & Company law firm recently welcomed its new partner Mohamed Gabr, former partner at Matouk Bassiouny law firm, to its office in Cairo in order to meet the growing demand on the firm’s services.
Gabr has worked on high-profile transactions over the years, including the merger of Al Borg and Al Mokhtabar, the private placement of Wadi Degla for Investment, the management buyout of TBS and the initial public offering (IPO) of Arabian Cement Company on the Egyptian Exchange. He is ranked as a leading lawyer in capital markets, mergers and acquisitions (M&A), and restructuring and insolvency in Egypt for 2017 by the law review magazine IFLR 1000.
Through the firm’s new addition, Al Tamimi seeks to strengthen its practice in Egypt, particularly boost its M&A after a series of high-profile work in the sector over the past year. “He will certainly be an instrumental asset as we look to cement our position as a leading law firm in Egypt,” said Ayman Nour, partner and head of the Egypt office.
Al Tamimi & Company was established in 1989 with 57 partners, a staff of 600 employees, and 17 offices in nine countries. It was launched in Egypt in April 2015. The firm specialises in advising international and financial institutions, Middle East banks, and government organisations on their global operations and investment, with its wide expertise in arbitration, banking & finance, dispute resolution, and other activities.
