Ali & Ali


Ali & Ali, Barristers and Corporate Consultants is a leading corporate and commercial law firm based in Lahore, Pakistan. The Firm, led by Managing Partner Syed Reza Ali advises microfinance banks and institutions, offshore investment funds, telecommunication companies, startups and fintech companies on corporate and commercial matters, banking law, debt and equity financing, mergers and acquisitions, competition law, and intellectual property law.




Ali & Ali have been the legal advisors to EQ and its associated global funds; EMF Microfinance and Spark + Africa, since October 2021. They advise on matters concerning our debt and quasi-equity arrangements in Africa, Central Asia, East Asia, and Latin America. During our association, we have had the pleasure of exposing the firm to a truly diverse and global experience. They have closely worked with our senior management team, credit administration officers, and investment teams in closing deals across different continents.


“The transactions have been versatile and multi-faceted and EQ’s management and team members have demonstrated an outstanding work ethic along with empathy and leadership, as we close challenging transactions in time-sensitive scenarios.”

Syed Reza Ali, Managing Partner


The Firm works closely with the investment teams and senior management in drafting and vetting loan and security documentation relating to debt and quasi-debt financing structures, negotiating and drafting multiple debt agreements, shareholder agreements, inter-creditor agreements, and complex securitization structures. To attest to their vast experience, Ali & Ali have interacted and worked with global law firms and legal practitioners representing our borrowers and investees in multiple cross-border jurisdictions: an experience that Reza says has been intellectually enriching and a source of great learning.


“It has been an absolute pleasure advising EQ and its associated Funds concerning their global debt, equity, and quasi-debt transactions. We are privileged to play our part in investments that create a meaningful social and environmental impact, in an organization that values and spearheads a Servant Leadership philosophy. Our goal for the future is to assist EQ in developing and reviewing diversified investment instruments and work closely in safeguarding their legal interests as well as witnessing them making a truly global impact for all the right reasons!”
