Raymond E. Chedid

Raymond E. Chedid is the founding partner of Chedid Law Offices in Beirut. He focuses on corporate law, both on the advisory and litigation fronts. He is also an expert on public and administrative law and more generally on the topic of government relations with the private sector. In addition, he also deals with criminal law issues, especially white collar crime. His clients are active in the areas of finance, real estate, hotels and resorts, gaming, and pharmaceuticals.

Raymond received his LL.B. degree in French law from the University of Lyons in France in 1956. He also received an LL.B. degree in Lebanese law from the Saint-Joseph University Law School of Lebanon in 1957, where he was awarded an excellence scholarship.

He is a member of the Beirut Bar, and has been admitted to practice before the Court of Appeals (“ Cour d’appel”) and the Supreme Court (“Cour de cassation”) since 1959.

He was elected a representative of the Beirut Bar Association for the first time in 1969 and has been closely involved in the Bar’s matters ever since. He has served as the Bar Association’s President from 2001 to 2003. He was also the President of the Bar’s Institute for Human Rights between 2003 and 2006. He was elected a member of the Council of the International Criminal Bar at its first general assembly in 2003, and was later elected as one of its Vice-Presidents in 2005.

The order of the “Légion d’honneur” has been conferred to Raymond by the French President in 2003. Earlier in the same year, he was awarded the “Médaille de l’Ordre National du Cèdre” by the President of the Republic of Lebanon.

Raymond is equally fluent in French and Arabic and has a good working knowledge of English.
