A civil dispute involving a foreign property [The Client] who sent three original deeds (ownership chain) to a reliable source [The Defendant]. Two of the deeds were altered by the defendant, making the two contracts invalid. Both contracts were found to be forged by the competent authority. We adjust our defence strategy to strike a balance between proving the property’s ownership and taking precautionary measures to eliminate any suspicion of fraud that had been established in the records. Our strategy is to prove the client’s ownership via possession for more than 15 years while also prolonging the civil element of the case, which resulted in the criminal charge of fraud being dismissed. We won the case, and the verdict was in our client’s favour, confirming his ownership of the property and his acquittal of the fraud charge.
Terminating lease contracts in the 1950s and expelling illegally remaining occupants by procuring a court decision/order and enforcing it for two decades set a record for “lease contracts” governed by Egyptian law

Obtained a civil judgment in our client’s favor, a prominent glass manufacturer, stating a suspended sentence of 1,000 EGP for only a misdemeanor for breaking the Egyptian Environmental Law, notwithstanding the law’s mandatory sentence being 1,000,000 EGP.
We reduced a criminal proclamation act that stipulated a breach of “The Egyptian Customs Law” on “Joint Stock enterprise” [The Client] from the seizure of commodities valued roughly 1 million EGP to a suspended sentence of 1,000 EGP only, based on the argument of unconstitutionality of the Egyptian Customs Law with regard to not uttering the necessity of the legal representative’s guaranteed knowledge
We attained a court ruling in a disciplinary suit made by a government body vs. an employee [The Client], demonstrating his innocence from the administrative breach attributed to him.
