Practice Areas

Insurance & Reinsurance, Litigation, Real Estate, Restructuring & Insolvency


Hikmat’s tenacity in the courtroom combined with over a decade of civil litigation experience particularly insurance and reinsurance, real estate, labor, fraud, embezzlement, cybercrime and intellectual property infringement makes him a strong advocate.

This seasoned trial attorney knows that representing financial, real estate and insurance entities requires determination, a strong presence and the ability to foresee what the opposing side will try to do whether in the courts of first instance for more routine cases or the high court for more notable cases against governmental entities.

Hikmat also uses his trial experience and understanding of risk management to create agreements that are more likely to hold up in Lebanese courts at all levels. In spite of a heavy caseload, he continues to have an overwhelmingly successful trial record at every court level.

While a regular participant in various conferences on legal topics, Hikmat was one of the first trainee lawyers to give a lecture at the Beirut Bar Association where he spoke about the rental law in Lebanon. He continues to share his breadth of knowledge with our young lawyers today.

He joined the Beirut Bar Association in 2005.
