Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright has advised Best Financière on the investment by Euromena in its subsidiary Retail Holding S.A., a privately held company based in Morocco. It is the majority owner and operator of Label’Vie, Morocco’s leading supermarket chain which is listed on the Casablanca Stock Exchange.

Euromena is a private equity fund that focuses on high growth mid-market private companies primarily in the Middle East and North Africa region.

Alain Malek, who is also co-head of the Casablanca office of the firm, comments: “We are dedicated to advising a wide range of Moroccan companies on transactions that help them grow their businesses and capitalise on regional and global investment opportunities.”

Alain Malek’s team has previously advised Best Financière on several deals in Morocco including the establishment and expansion of the brands Carrefour and Burger King in the country.

Euromena was advised by Dentons with a team led by partner Patrick Larrivé and including senior associate Zineb Tayaa.
