MCL History

Our Legacy - The MCL Journey


In 1987, a unique vision materialized into reality, birthing what we now proudly call MENA City Lawyers (MCL). Originating as Jamaleddine Law Firm, MCL marked a distinctive paradigm shift in a region where the legal landscape was predominantly ruled by individual practitioners. Our inception as a civil partnership company laid the foundation for a fresh approach to delivering legal services.


For over three decades, MCL has taken immense pride in our uncompromising commitment to offer clear-cut solutions and astute legal counsel to both local and international entities, as well as individuals. Our journey is a testament to our unwavering dedication, etched in the numerous success stories of our esteemed clients.


Throughout our 34-year history, we have developed robust alliances with significant law firms worldwide. This global network, coupled with our regional expertise, enables us to furnish our clients with exceptional legal services at highly competitive rates. Our client-centric approach has been the cornerstone of our growth, enabling us to continually exceed our clients' expectations.


Reflecting our ambition to make an even greater impact, MCL is constantly broadening its horizons across the Arab nations. This expansion reflects our ceaseless pursuit to provide robust, comprehensive, and innovative legal solutions on a global scale.


As we continue to chart our course, we stay committed to our founding principles of integrity, excellence, and unparalleled service delivery, promising a prosperous future not just for MCL, but for all who engage with us.
