Corporate Structuring & Restructuring

At KP, we work closely with our clients to ensure they land their investment opportunity via the most efficient structure that maximizes benefits offered by the Egyptian legal system. Be it a free zone, onshore, or SEC zone vehicle, we are mindful of the most appropriate structure that suits your business needs; enabling them to enjoy incentivized packages offered in the local market. When it comes to land allocation procedures, challenges can be tricky in this area given the variety of legal structures available to allocate land in Egypt. We can support you to source the land that suits your investment on the Egyptian Investment Maps and offer you procedural and legal guidance to surf through the allocation process. As for regulatory licenses, the procedures are numerous and depend on the exact activity you are contemplating; hence, carefully understanding the licensing process is crucial for the continued success of your business.

We know all it takes and where to receive it when it comes to your licensing process. Therefore, in any of the phases of your business establishment in Egypt: Incorporation, Land Allocation, Licensing and Regulatory Approvals at GAFI or other government bodies, we are your strategic partner for a smooth and safe journey in this realm.

Structuring or restructuring your business in Egypt requires a clear understanding of Companies Law, the Investment Law, Capital Markets Law, and many other laws and regulations depending on the exact scope of the structure or restructuring process.

Mergers & Acquisitions

KP’s merger and acquisition team has been involved in many landmarks M&A in Egypt and throughout the region. Handling M&A transactions requires a deep understanding of the regulatory environment as well as the ability to draft and negotiate a solid suite of documentation that meet best international practice yet are locally enforceable at the same time. This can be a challenging issue, as many clients tend to use international documentation, however, the same reveals issues of enforceability (as not everything that is well crafted and applicable under English Law or other international laws can be enforced before local courts or by relevant regulators). With our international experience and local expertise, we are your strategic partner in the completion of a successful closure to your deal on terms that are enforceable when it comes to implementation and/or favorable dispute settlement if matters go bitter.
