SRDB launches new Tunisia office led by Yosr Hafhouf
SRDB law firm has continued its expansion in North Africa with the opening of a new office in Tunisia. Headed by attorney Yosr Hafhouf (pictured), the new office is intended to boost SRDB’s strategic coverage of the Mediterranean region, adding to the firm’s presence in Morocco and Algeria.
“I want to turn SRDB in Tunisia into a leading law firm on the African continent, one which works to international standards. I am convinced that Yosr, with her temperament, know-how and expertise, will contribute to the success of the firm in Africa,” added Georges Sioufi, partner and co-founder, SRDB Law Firm
The Tunisia office provides services in all fields traditionally covered by the firm: commercial law – international litigation – transport and insurance law – criminal business law – intellectual property – compliance – Restructuring, etc.
Yosr Hafhouf has been a practicing lawyer in Tunisia since becoming a member of the bar in 2006. She built a solid track record at various corporate law firms where she developed strong corporate law skills. Hafhouf previously served as legal manager at Cma-Cgm for shipping and logistics company CMA-CGM in Tunisia for four years. She also taught law at the Faculty of Law and Political Science in Tunis for several years.
Under the leadership of Yosr Hafhouf, SRDB Tunisia will offer its services to help companies set up in the country, run their operations and represent them in litigation.
“My motivation for this project was based on the fact that there are not enough international law firms in Tunisia. The country has privileged relations not only with France, but also with Europe and the whole of Africa, where SRDB has very active offices. I immediately felt that it was a great opportunity to be associated with the expertise and reputable practice of an international law firm such as SRDB, and in doing so help provide our clients with quality legal assistance. SRDB has offices throughout the Middle East and Africa. In fact, SRDB has been ranked as one of the top law firms on the African continent. I think this network provides an opportunity for us to accompany investors from various countries in their projects in Tunisia,” commented Yosr Hafhouf.
