Share

Mehrteab Leul & Associates Law Office (MLA) announced the firm’s conversion from a sole proprietorship to a De-Jure law firm Mehrteab & Getu Advocates LLP (MLA) becoming one of the first limited liability partnership firms.
On Tuesday July 5, 2022 in an event held at the Sheraton Hotel, the firm officially announced its launch with the presence of prominent government officials, local and international clients of the firm, and other stakeholders. This makes the firm one of the first law firms and the first corporate law firm in the country.
MLA is one of the leading full-service law firms with 25 years of experience that focuses on corporate legal services. The firm provides services for the business community, including international companies interested in working in Ethiopia. It offers specialized services such as corporate, employment and immigration, finance, intellectual property and technology, private equity, projects, energy and infrastructure, hospitality and leisure, real estate, regulatory and government affairs, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), aviation, tax, and litigation. MLA advises its clients and performs legal services like drafting legal documents, processing licenses, and other legal services the client requires. The firm also has over 300 corporate clients.
The conversion comes after Ethiopia’s new sanction of the Federal Advocacy Service Licensing and Administration Proclamation No. 1249/2021 (Advocates Proclamation).
“MLA is now crossing a big milestone by its conversion,” said the founding partners, Mehiretab Leul and Getu Shiferaw. “Under the newly adopted home grown economic policy of the country the private sector is expected to have a big role in the development meanwhile this policy shift cannot be realized without the role of law firms,” said the founders.
