Company Profile

Bakhos Law has been at the heart of the Lebanese legal system for over 60 years.
Throughout that time, we have built a reputation that is second to none for the professionalism
and dedication of our legal teams. No matter what the complexity of a client’s issues, we have always
been able to construct a solid, well-founded strategy to afford the client the very best in legal advice and action.

While the core of our activities remain litigation, corporate, criminal, maritime, construction, real-estate, labour and family law, in recent years we have expanded our capabilities to cover more specialized areas. These include oil and gas, mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property, franchising, and, importantly, U.S. law. Our expertise in these areas is now highly sought-after, having been reinforced by our alliances with international law firms based around the globe.

The hallmark of our practice is our six decades of commitment to providing first-class client services, sound legal guidance, and professional advice. Bakhos Law is built on the principle of delivering straight forward answers to the most challenging and complex legal issues, something we have been doing since our inception.



With a history dating back to the 1950s, Bakhos Law is one of the longest-established and most respected law firms in Lebanon. A major part of our proud history was the selfless dedication of our founder, Auguste Bakhos Sr, to the modernization of Lebanese law and the legal system in Lebanon. During 25 years as a Member of the Lebanese Parliament, Auguste Bakhos Sr was president of both the Committee for the Improvement of Laws, and of the Justice Committee. The legacy of his dedication and hard work has been passed through the generations to lawyers and interns who have worked with the firm during the past sixty years.



Our philosophy is clear and unequivocal: to represent our clients effectively, develop realistic and viable legal options for resolution of their disputes, and negotiate the settlement that best serves their interests. We place a premium on finding solutions to legal problems before a lawsuit is actually filed, and in case of litigation, we continue to explore settlement possibilities while aggressively representing our client in court. In many instances, we have successfully resolved conflicts without resorting to a lawsuit. In litigated cases, we have achieved outstanding successes in negotiating settlements that have been acceptable to our clients without the expense and risk of going to trial.
