About us

MS-Legal is a dynamic boutique law firm based in central London. Founded by Mohamed Shaban in 2005, it offers individuals, businesses, organisations and governments a range of legal services.

For individuals we advise and assist in residential property transactions, wills drafting, probate and estate distribution as well visa and immigration services to high net-worth individuals seeking to invest, trade or work in the UK.

For business clients we assist with company formations (including offshore), shareholder agreements, trade contracts, as well as assistance with commercial real estate transactions.

Governments have also relied on our expertise. We are regarded as being at the forefront of public international law disputes, matters affecting State and diplomatic immunity as well as asset recovery work. We are the first law firm to bring a successful asset recovery claim following the Arab Spring, for example. We have also tested major international law issues before the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom and continue to advise foreign States before European and International Courts including the International Criminal Court.

In view of our reputation and cutting edge work in the international law sphere we have attracted some of the world’s leading law firms and Queen’s Counsel to support our work on a regular basis. This network of support means that no matter the size or value of a case we are able to provide our clients with an expert legal service.

Our offices are conveniently located next door to Holborn underground station and are within walking distance of the Royal Courts of Justice, the Law Society’s headquarters, the Houses of Parliament and the City of London. We are therefore strategically located within the UK’s legal, political and financial hub.

Is this house the key to seizing Gaddafi assets in the UK?

Seven Winnington Close may sound like any suburban address, but this house in London’s “Millionaire’s Row” may be the first Gaddafi family asset in the UK to be returned to the Libyan government – and could help Libyan lawyers reclaim others too.
