17 offices across 10 countries; we are expanding our operations in Africa

We are pleased to share that we have announced the opening of our new office in Casablanca, Morocco, and our doors will officially open on the 1 April 2022. The expansion will see our firm’s footprint in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region grow to 17 offices across 10 countries.

Our move into Morocco builds on our strategic expansion plans for the African continent and follows a successful 2021 office opening in Port Said, Egypt. The new office in Casablanca is our third office in Africa (Cairo, Port Said, and Casablanca) and will play an important role in realising our long-term vision.

Morocco was identified as a destination due to its position as a gateway for investment into Africa. It acts as a strategic base for law firms and international businesses looking to operate in the region. These factors, combined with a well-developed market and the opportunity to support our clients across a variety of African territories, made Morocco an attractive location for us to set up our new office.

As of 1 April 2022, Nesrine Roudane, Managing Partner of Roudane & Partners Law Firm, will become a partner of Al Tamimi & Company and act as Head of the Morocco office.

Commenting on the opening of the Casablanca office, Samer Qudah, Managing Partner at Al Tamimi & Company said:

“This marks an important moment for us, and we are delighted to expand the Al Tamimi & Company brand and grow our footprint in Africa. Establishing an office in Casablanca moves us a step closer to achieving our vision, which is to be the leading law firm in the Middle East and North Africa. Opening the new office at a time like this is an indicator of our ambition to continue to expand our presence, particularly in Africa, as it remains a strategically important region for our clients and the firm.”

Essam Al Tamimi, Chairman, Al Tamimi & Company commented:

“As the firm enters its 33rd year, expanding further into Africa is a timely reminder of how far we have come. As one of Africa’s largest economies, Morocco is an exciting market for the firm and we look forward to building our practice, working with our clients, and offering them the high standard of expertise and service they would expect from Al Tamimi & Company.”

Nesrine Roudane, Partner and Head of the Morocco office at Al Tamimi & Company said:

“I am excited to become a partner of Al Tamimi & Company and to lead the team in Casablanca. I look forward to offering our clients the unrivalled capability and experience that Al Tamimi & Company will bring to the Moroccan market. We are here to ensure our clients have access to the best legal services in Morocco.”

We look forward to continuing to support our clients across the MENA region, including now in Morocco from 1 April. If you have any questions or would like to speak to a member of our team, please contact us here.
