Resorting to courts is not our aim in every lawsuit. We first seek to control the dispute and resolve issues rapidly and through the most appropriate means.
However, when the matter requires resorting to litigation, we invoke our vast practical experience before courts of all instances, including the supreme Court.
Commercial litigation has been the bedrock of our firm’s legal practice since our founding. Our breadth and depth of experience is unparalleled, and we have become the first choice for investors and entrepreneurs. We have successfully handled thousands of cases for clients engaged in major business disputes related to anti-trust, corporate governance, insurance, taxation, commercial and construction contracts, franchises and dealerships, libel, patents and illegitimate competition.
We are well-equipped to handle the most complex commercial matters since our years of experience have taught us what to expect and how to achieve results. We never lose sight of the needs of our clients, regardless of whether they are large corporations or smaller enterprises.
We provide precise answers to tasking intellectual property inquiries, and our attorneys regularly represent plaintiffs and defendants before courts in Egypt in cases concerning patent, copyright and trademark infringements, industrial designs, illegitimate competition and trade-secrets.
For our clients outside Egypt, we can suggest trusted local firms through our collaboration with Andersen Tax and Legal, which gives us access to IP attorneys worldwide who share our values in technical excellence.
Our clients always have confidence in our ability to choose the best.
Economic Crime is a broad category of criminal charges referring to taking possession of money or other items of value that do not belong to you. Economic crimes include various forms of fraud, computer crimes related to cyber fraud, crimes of tax evasion, money laundering, embezzlement, forgery and bribery. Economic crimes extend to include crimes that fall on corporate businesses such as those related to information technology, trademarks, commercial counterfeiting, and the environment.
All of these charges can become extremely complicated and require a particular skill set, as well as sensitivity on behalf of the attorney to fully comprehend the impact of the case. Naturally, the attorney also needs to be fierce and have a thorough understanding of the surrounding laws which may affect the case at hand.
Whatever the nature of the dispute, our attorneys are well equipped to handle all matters related to financial crimes. Maher Milad Iskander has an exceptional track record of working with corporations, banks and individuals, all of whom have benefited from our straight-forward, realistic and seasoned advice.
