Mohamed El-Sharnoby's Profile Image

Mohamed El-Sharnoby

A native of Egypt, Mohamed El-Sharnoby graduated with a Bachelor's degree in law in 1992 from Ain Shams University, School of Law, in Cairo. After moving to the United States, he also earned a Bachelor's degree in Political Science in 2002 from Ave Maria University. Pursuing a Master's degree in International Law was a natural progression given his interests, and Mohamed received his LLM from Michigan State University, School of Law, in 2004.

Originally admitted to practice in Egypt, he maintains his license to practice there as well as in the Michigan state courts and in federal court for the Eastern District of Michigan.

Mohamed concentrates his legal practice in the areas of international law and business, including corporate and commercial law; mergers and acquisitions; business restructuring and insolvency; real estate; trade and export finance; aviation; government contracts; immigration; international trade and investment, including International Trade Commission work; and the growing area of internet and e-commerce litigation.
