Projects and Infrastructure

Mazghouny & Co is one of the fastest growing projects and infrastructure law firms in Egypt. We are a niche practice, focusing on advising multinational corporations, financial investors, funds, and government/public sector bodies on all aspects of law related to projects and infrastructure.

Egypt’s construction sector is one of the most dynamic sectors of the economy. This is supported by the significant number of large-scale projects involving transport, energy, utilities, and urban development. We have assisted many companies in positioning themselves to take advantage of the opportunities that have come to market over the last few years. From setting up a project company and raising finance, to advising on real estate acquisitions of title, and negotiating contracts to obtain financing, concession agreements or sale agreements, our multi-lingual team work smartly and quickly to ensure you get the commercially astute guidance required.

Our local industry expertise and creative approach sets us apart. We work with our clients on a holistic level, taking the time to understand and support the needs of the legal, business development, finance, operations, and any other internal stakeholders in the project.

We also provide clients with introductions to lenders, contractors, suppliers, and other organisations/partners needed throughout a project’s development and exit phase.
