EL KHOURY & PARTNERS Law Firm traces its roots to 1930 when Checri Bertou El Khoury, one of the most distinctive practitioners of his generation, founded a law firm under his name. Mr. El Khoury was recognized for his instrumental involvement in the development of the Code of Commerce, the Code of Obligations and Contracts and other core legislation in the country. Mr. El Khoury’s reputation was further built on his significant success in the country’s most visible lawsuits.

In 1967, his son Robert Checri El Khoury joined the firm, considerably developed its line of legal services and expanded its clientele base.

In 2005, Chucri Robert El Khoury became the Managing Partner at the Firm, and was influential in contributing to the Firm’s leading position and in the establishment of capital markets and project finance practices, delivering prime legal services to local and international clients. He further conducted an internal restructuring at the Firm, which also resulted in its current name.
