Bennani & Associés is the first independent legal consulting firm in business law in North Africa, West Africa and Central Africa

About us


Founded in 2004 by Mehdi Bennani (Attorney at Law, New York) and Abdellah Moustaid (Attorney at Law, Casablanca), the firm opened its first office in Morocco to advise its clients in their establishment and development projects in Francophone Africa. Ten years later, Bennani & Associés opened an office in Algiers to continue to assist its clients in Algeria.

2015 > 2018

This regional expansion was subsequently confirmed with the opening in 2015 of an office in Tunis and another in Abidjan in 2018.

2018 to present

Today, Bennani & Associés is fulfilling the ambitions of its founders by becoming the firm of choice for an international clientele looking for opportunities in a region of the world with strong economic potential.

Recognized for its high quality services and its tailor-made advice at the level of the standards of the largest international firms, Bennani & Associés has today five offices in the most important areas and sectors in North Africa, West Africa and Central Africa.
