Establishment of the Firm

The firm was founded in 1976 by the late Advocate Elsadig Shami (1940-2011). Mr. Sadig was one of the prominent Sudanese lawyers. He joined the Bench in Sudan in 1965 and practiced as a judge until he became a High Court Judge. Then in 1974, he was appointed as the Prosecutor General of the Republic of Sudan. He resigned that office and started a private practice in the Bar establishing this firm in 1976. Mr. Shami was widely known as a key figure in the transitional justice trials following the April 1985 Popular Uprise and in a number of high profile trials in Arab countries as well. He had an intense, wide and diversified practice and was specially known as a tier one commercial and corporate lawyer.
