About Us

The Founder

“Work is love made visibleAnd if you cannot work with love but only with distaste, it is better that you should leave your work and sit at the gate of the temple and take alms of those who work with joy. For if you bake bread with indifference, you bake a bitter bread that feeds but half man’s hunger. And if you grudge the crushing of the grapes, your grudge distils a poison in the wine. And if you sing though as angels, and love not the singing, you muffle man’s ears to the voices of the day and the voices of the night."

Khalil Gibran

Since the establishment of our firm, its fundamental core value has always been to work with passion, dedication, professionalism, and ethics. We exert every effort in order to honor the mission entrusted to us by our clients, best serve their interests and handle their cases with the utmost loyalty.

I was lucky and privileged to work with a team who shares the Firm’s values and who contributed immensely to its expansion. I cannot but express my gratitude to them and rely on them for a greater success in the future.
