Key Principles and Sources of Contract Law:

Egyptian Civil Code (Law No. 131 of 1948): The Egyptian Civil Code serves as the primary legal framework for contract law in Egypt. It outlines the general principles of contract formation, including offer, acceptance, consideration, and intention to create legal relations. Additionally, the Civil Code provides rules for contract interpretation, performance, and remedies for breach.

"Wir haben 2016/17 von einem nicht seriösen Anwalt zwei Wohnungen gekauft gehabt, wir sind dann über die Deutsche Botschaft zu Mr. Michael gestoßen und er hat uns sehr geholfen. Wir sind aktuell dran das Problem mit dem vorherigen Anwalt und Herrn Nader zu klären. Wir werden jede Entscheidung nun mit Herrn Michael Nader vorher klären und dann eine Wahl treffen. Also ich kann ihm sehr empfehlen. Sehr vertrauenswürdig und hilfsbereit.
