About the Founder

Raphaël & Associés was founded by the late Moussa Raphaël in 1959. Moussa Raphaël was the only lawyer in all of Lebanon to be named a “senior statesman” by the international legal guide “Chambers” (2009). He was also recognized as “having immense prestige” and was “one of the most renowned practitioners in Lebanon”.
