Setting the first precedent in the Egyptian sports sector, Matouk Bassiouny & Hennawy (“MBH”) secured a favorable international sports arbitration award from the Court of Arbitration for Sport (“CAS”) in Lausanne, Switzerland amounting to EGP 20 million for Nogoom Football Club (“NFC”) and successfully defended it against claims and counterclaims exceeding half a million US Dollars.

The arbitration team who handled this case consists of Dr. Amr A. Abbas, F. John Matouk, Mohamed Samir Rady, Hany Omran, and Malak Elmenshawy.
