Ferchiou & Associés is an excellent option on the Tunisian market with a wealth of top rated lawyers practicing to international standards not usually seen in the country. Known for its cross-border strength, the firm is active on some of the country's most high profile projects. Areas of expertise include banking, leveraged finance, derivatives, acquisition and asset finance, private equity and debt financing, and has in the past represented the government as local counsel in connection with sovereign bond issuances. 

A notable client is Deutsche Bank who the firm is advising in relation to an ISDA repo with the Central Bank of Tunisia. Another transaction saw the firm act as legal counsel for the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) in relation to financing made available to Amen Bank; and the firm also acted for Etap, the Tunisian national oil company, in connection to the $120 million financing facility made available by the French Agency for Development.
