, Al Tamimi & Co is pleased to announce their participation in the Legal 500 GC summit on
Wednesday, the 19th of February 2020 atFour Seasons Hotel Nile Plaza.
Organised by international legal publisher Legal 500 the event is bringing together General Counsels and Heads of Legal Teams in many of the international companies and large domestic enterprises in Egypt.
As one of the leading law firms in Egypt Legal 500 invited Al Tamimi & Co to present and
lead a discussion on competition law.
Dr.Khaled Attia(Partner and Head of Dispute Resolution in Al Tamimi & Company Cairo Office)
will be featured as a moderator in a panel discussion alongside two other panellists;Justin Woodward,
Ezz Steel Chief Compliance Officer and Nada Amer,
Unilever Mashreq General Counsel and commercial Officer,to primarily discuss Competition practice.
Dr.Attia expresses his gratitude regarding Al Tamimi & Company’s role and involvement in this conference:
“The area of Competition Law is fast evolving not only here in Egypt but across MENA. Mega mergers such as that between Uber &Careem in which we are advising,
requires lawyers to have a close regard to evolving regulatory law in order to ensure compliance by their clients.
I am pleased to be able to share our expertise with such a distinguished gathering of lawyers representing businesses that are key to Egypt’s economic well-being.”
The focal point of the sessionwill be around the similarities and differences signified between normal business practices and anti-competitive practices which will out-turn in discussing Merger and Acquisition Transactions,
Exclusive Geographical Distribution and Resale Price Maintenance in distribution agreements.
