Our Story

Soaring over and above challenges.

“I founded this law firm in 2018 following a long legal career working on energy and infrastructure projects, transactions and disputes, across international and Libyan law firms and in-house.

When I made the choice to set up Eltumi Partners, previously Eltumi & Co, I knew it meant leaving the comfort and security of partnership at a major international law firm to build our firm from the ground up. Additionally, at a time of conflict and heightened instability in Libya and internationally, and soon a global pandemic, we were facing a unique series of testing circumstances.

But to me the decision was simple. I was drawn to the challenge to develop a first-class professional law firm in Libya that incorporates an outbound worldview, Libyan legal talent and promotes sustainable economic and social growth in the country. We certainly had our share of hurdles to cross to get here, but the team and I embrace a challenge!”
