Youssef & Partners Makes GAR 100
We are very happy to announce the inclusion of Youssef & Partners in the 2018 GAR 100 list of the top arbitration firms worldwide.
The firm has been described by the most prestigious guide to ‘approved’ International Arbitration firms as, ‘A young Cairo firm with big ambitions’. Having only opened in April 2016, it is an extraordinary achievement to be listed after only two years of firm practice.
It went on to say:
Karim Youssef set up this Egyptian full-service firm in 2016 after more than five years as partner at Amereller Legal Consultants in Cairo and Dubai, where he headed the Middle East arbitration practice. Before that, he practised for two years at Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton.
He has worked on some high-profile commercial and investment treaty arbitrations, often relating to public contracts awarded by states in the region.
It’s now a 16-strong practice, including a counsel and a group of senior associates. It takes pride in having an unusually large proportion of female lawyers compared with its competitors in the region.
