Professional Biography:

Samir Sayah is our exclusively recommended Tax Law expert in Algeria on the Advisory Excellence website. If you need assistance in this area, please contact Samir directly using the contact details listed above.

The Algerian business world has been experiencing deep economic and regulatory changes. With a reputation for being a complex market, it requires an in-depth knowledge of both the legal and cultural environment as well as business practices.

In this context, the support of our law firm, which has been present in Algeria and has recognised expertise in all the country’s growth sectors, is an advantage to ensure the proper management of your project.

We provide you with a comprehensive assistance to ensure your project has the best chance of success:

  • addressing new constraints in terms of mandatory national partnership for any foreign direct investment project;
  • adaptation of project financing tools to the obligation to use local financing;
  • expertise in new tax rules applicable to public contracts and procurement contracts;
  • anticipation of the legal framework for future large-scale energy-efficient projects.

For example, in 2017, our law firm advised IPSEN on the creation of a 49/51 joint venture, the first step before constructing its first factory in Africa for an oncology medicine. In 2018, our law firm also advised Pierre Fabre on a production joint venture for the manufacturing of various families of medicines.

We advise national and international investors operating across all business sectors, including health, energy, infrastructure, finance, automotive, telecommunications and agroindustry. We particularly assist them with mergers and acquisitions, as well as joint ventures.

With a multidisciplinary and multicultural team of around 15 lawyers and legal experts, our law firm is one of the few in Algeria to offer legal and tax assistance covering the main areas of business law.

Our objective is to enable you to achieve your project in Algeria under the best possible conditions.
