Market-leading law firm

Serving international and local clients from the Tripoli-based office, Zahaf & Partners Law Firm is a leading full-service independent law firm that specializes in quality legal services in Libya. 

Our dedicated team of lawyers works collaboratively to assist clients in achieving personal and business goals, structuring, negotiating and closing transactions, and handling disputed matters. We offer our clients tailored legal services and extensive expertise in both the local Libyan market and the broader international legal landscape. 

Dr. Saleh M Zahaf established Zahaf & Partners Law Firm in 1990 shortly after the laws governing the work of lawyers were liberalized by the Libyan regime at the time, intending to provide local and international clients with quality, transparent, and trusted legal services. The firm constantly strives to improve the standard of our services and to provide our clients with their desired legal solutions. This is ensured through the rigorous local and international training of our lawyers, their extensive legal experiences, and our firm’s partnerships with internationally renowned law firms such as BonelliErede, Baker McKenzie, and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer.
