The business contextHaving been in a state of profound change for over 10 years, the Algerian business world is rightly regarded as complex. It requires good knowledge of the legal and cultural environment and of business practice. Against this background, the support of a business law firm which has been practising in Algeria for over half a century, and which has recognised expertise in all the country’s key sectors, is one of the crucial factors in success.

In order to maximise the prospects of success, it is pertinent: to understand the new restrictions in relation to mandatory national partnerships for all proposed direct foreign investment,  to adapt project finance mechanisms to the obligatory use of local finance, to have a thorough command of the new tax rules applicable to public and supply contracts, to anticipate the legal implications of future large scale energy efficiency initiatives.Our practice areas Legal fields Company Law, Restructuring, M&A Major infrastructure projects Energy Public-Private Partnerships Taxation Public contracts Economic Law Employment Law Business sectors Agriculture and Food Processing Automotive Industry Building and Public Works Distribution Energy Pharmaceuticals Telecommunications InfrastructureOur clients International investors operating in all business sectors, especially energy, infrastructure, finance, the automotive industry, telecommunications, and agriculture and food processing.
