Following the success of the first Annual Arab Lawyers Forum held in 2016 in Morocco, the second Forum was held on 1-2 March 2017, El Gouna, Hurghada, Egypt. Co-organized by Al Tamimi & Company, Sarei-El Din and Partners and Kosheri, Rashed & Riad, the Event was a great success.
Discussions were all-encompassing and involved representatives of various regional and international legal associations and institutions including the International Bar Association, the London Court of International Arbitration (LCIA) and the Egyptian Bar Association.
