Shahid Law Firm (“SLF”) was established in 1987 by Counselor Sarwat Abd El-Shahid after serving as a judge and State Counselor for nearly two decades. Since its inception, the firm has grown to include over 100 lawyers, fee earners, and support staff and has become one of the leading international law firms operating in Egypt and the region. Such credit, undoubtfully, 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.
SLF’s strength lies in our understanding of our clients’ commercial needs which, coupled with our detailed knowledge of the legal systems in which we operate, longstanding experience in transactions and the resolution of disputes, as well as our close ties to other leading firms in the region and beyond, ensures that our clients can obtain the best services they need. We value people with a “client-first” mindset, excellent communication skills, appreciation for cultural differences, and an ability to work effectively as team players.
SLF has become the first major Egyptian law firm to expand into the East African market through the signing of an affiliation agreement with the leading and much respected counterparts, Meseret and Associates Law Office (Ethiopia) and Yousra Y. M. Elhassam Badi – Advocate (Sudan). Through its affiliate offices in Ethiopia and Sudan as well as its contacts in Western and Southern Africa, SLF began expanding its reach throughout the African continent.
