At the crossroads between Asia and Africa, Egypt is a significant regional and global hub and represents a strategic avenue for development for a number of private and public players. Gide has been advising and assisting clients in Egypt for many years on their investments, acquisitions, various commercial agreements, international arbitration cases, and projects (finance & infrastructure). Gide is the first international law firm of French origin to set up in Cairo and the only international law firm to have such a footprint in the Middle East and North Africa, with six offices in the region (Algiers, Cairo, Casablanca, Istanbul, Tehran and Tunis).
Our lawyers advise French and international clients on their projects and investments in Egypt, as well as Egyptian companies in their international transactions, both in an advisory and litigation capacity.
Gide Cairo is headed by partner Baudouin de Moucheron, founder of the firm's Istanbul office and Senior Partner from 2012 to 2017. The team in Cairo comprises mainly lawyers of Egyptian origin, working in Arabic, English, French and German.
Gide’s longstanding and strong presence in the MENA region, combined with our comprehensive knowledge of civil and common law systems and solid relationships with local authorities, along with a finely tuned sensitivity to cultural issues constitute a robust platform for the implementation and development of our clients’ projects in Egypt.
According to clients’ needs, our lawyers in Egypt work as a multidisciplinary team with the firm’s other international practice groups and offices to share skills and experience and thus guarantee the best possible quality of service.
