Shahid Law Firm was established in 1987 by Counselor Sarwat Abd El-Shahid, after serving as judge and State Counselor for nearly two decades. Since its inception, the Firm has rapidly grown to include over 70 lawyers and support staff, and has become one of the leading international law firms operating in Egypt and the region. Such credit, undoubtedly, is largely due to its lawyers’ vast experience, industry insight, and ability to combine their understanding of complex legal matters with a practical solution-oriented approach.
The Firm has a team of Egyptian and Western-trained attorneys and legal consultants, with experience in multiple jurisdictions. Our lawyers’ rich and diverse educational backgrounds and language skills have enabled our team to communicate with clients from all over the world. Our Firm is placed among few firms in Egypt and the region that are able to provide services in English, French, Italian, German, Spanish Portuguese, and, of course, Arabic.
Our clients include medium-sized to large international corporations, industrial conglomerates, banks, insurance companies, high-net-worth individuals and families, diplomatic representations and governments; and our experience spans various sectors, including pharmaceuticals, energy and power, oil and gas, mining, manufacturing, leisure and hotels, consumer products, foodstuffs, banking and finance, information technology and telecommunications.
