Pro bono legal assistance
The Firm has adopted several human rights and women’s rights cases on a pro bono basis with the aim of creating significant precedents or changing discriminatory provisions of certain laws. The Firm is currently the sole legal counsel and strategic partner of the Ahl Masr Foundation currently constructing the first hospital of its kind in Egypt, the Middle East and Africa to offer free treatment to trauma and burn victims in Egypt.
The Firm has established a large number of leading non-governmental organizations and foundations, and provides access to critically needed legal assistance to a number of organizations, including: the Citadel Capital Scholarship Foundation, Ashoka Egypt, Endeavour Egypt, Education for Employment Foundation, Mohamed Hassanein Heikal Foundation for Arab Press, Habitat for Humanity International, Development of Technological Education Foundation and the Egyptian Education Foundation.
The Firm encourages its members to contribute to the community as a whole; we contribute not only financial and other material resources, but also in volunteering time, skills, experience and effort.
