Our Founder

Fatma Swehli is a distinguished attorney, licensed in New York and a solicitor in England & Wales, boasting an extensive legal career of over fifteen years. Her diverse experience spans senior roles as an in-house counsel and external advisor, covering a wide scope across the MENA region, Africa, and Europe.

Drawing from her extensive experience as in-house counsel for various prominent companies in the MENA region, Fatma recognised a significant gap in accessible legal services catered to the specific needs of small and medium-sized enterprises, a gap even more apparent when seeking specialised Arabic legal support. Motivated by a deep sense of empathy for business owners and managers grappling with legal complexities, Fatma established FS Legal Services (FSLS).

FSLS was founded with a clear objective—to bridge the legal support gap for businesses. This vision was fueled by Fatma’s passion for entrepreneurship, her deep understanding of the law, and her genuine desire to serve local communities and businesses. This became FSLS’ dedicated mission, empowering small and medium-sized enterprises, assisting them in growing confidently and in full compliance.

This steadfast philosophy, firmly grounded in FSLS’s core values, serves as the bedrock of trust for our clients. At FSLS, we are wholeheartedly committed to leveraging our wealth of experience and unwavering dedication to support our clients in their legal journey, ensuring their path to success is smooth and safeguarded.
