Santaniello & Partners in Egypt

Egypt is the most important country in North Africa. Its cities are authentic open-air museums and have ancient history and culture. Independent since 1936, Egypt suffered, over the centuries, different dominations and military occupations by foreign empires and armies, last in order of time, France of Napoleon Bonaparte and United Kingdom, which transformed the country in a British Protectorate. Even Suez Canal's construction was influenced by France and England.

or these reasons, even if Arabic is the official language of the country, English and French are spoken by many Egyptians and the legal system is inspired by modern European ones. We can describe the Egyptian Law as a civil law system, except for family matters and person's status, where some religious rules apply. 

However, the last political and social events have undermined the stability of the country causing uncertainty about the safeguard of civil and political rights, the respect of trade agreements, the protection of property and more.
