The Founder

 

I’ve graduated from Cairo University’s law school and obtained my LLB in 2000.

After completing my two-year mandatory post-graduation legal training at Shalakany Law Firm in Cairo, I was admitted as a barrister to the Egyptian Bar Association.

Throughout my career, I was privileged to render corporate legal consultancy and services to world-class institutions including the IFC, the World Bank, IBM, Microsoft, Nestlé, and Unilever. Helping C-Suite executives of leading corporations for over two decades has helped me remain at the forefront of corporate governance and law.

Later, I joined and became a member of the Swiss Jurists Association, the Swiss Sports Law Association, Sports Lawyers Association in the USA, the International Sports Law Association in Greece, Union International des Avocats in Paris, and the International Bar Association in London.

Continuing my higher education, I took and taught several online and off businesses degrees, cybersecurity, algorithm, forensics and full stack coding diplomas, marketing automation certifications, content strategy, copywriting and guest blogging certificates and professional legal courses offered by leading educational institutions including Harvard University, Bern University of Applied Sciences, The German University, The British Council, The French Ministry of Higher Education, CTI, IBM, Google, Udacity, Get Smarter among others.

Pursuing my passion for horses and riding (show jumping) more academically, I was awarded the Equiguarde certification and the Swiss Federal horse professional license.  I studied equine science and equestrian sports at the Federation Equestre International, International Society for Equitation Science, and Haras National Suisse.

Combining my legal profession with my horse passion and professional certification has allowed me to uniquely serve the equine and equestrian sports segment and offer them an unmatchable experience of Swiss quality.

Through EquiJuri, my equestrian sports agency, I render professional holistic consultancy with unique knowledge, skill, experience and professionalism in the fields of compliance, corporate governance, cybersecurity, sports law, business law and equestrian sports arbitration to horse riders, professionals, show jumpers, horse owners, breeding associations, equestrian sports federations, online businesses, coaches, media and event organizers.

When I am not lawyering or showjumping, I love spending uninterrupted quality time with my wife and three kids, playing music, dancing, chess, scuba diving, and sailing.
