I engaged Ms Monadjem to help me deal with an uncooperative executor managing my father's complex estate. She identified the legal issues quickly, and devised a strategy to address the issues. She continues to provide me with information and support on an ad hoc basis.
I wanted Mona to draft a fairly straight forward will for me. She quickly spotted problems in my estate planning, and gave me advice on the trust structures and relationships that ensued. She also engaged with my financial planners and trust management advisors to resolve the issues, and to ensure that my family is properly protected.
Mona has helped our family resolve various legal and contractual issues. She is thorough, diligent, and professional and her manner is calm, positive, and reassuring. We would not hesitate to recommend Mona, and we trust her entirely with our family's affairs.
Mona has played a key role in Ashira as founder, director and then as an independent consultant. The one factor that distinguishes her from other lawyers is her interdisciplinary flexibility. She moves easily from contracts to the underlying financial models and brings her own authentic approach to the table. Our clients have commented time and again how valuable her contribution to a project is and requested her personal attendance to their matter.
I co-founded Ashira with Mona Monadjem in 2000. When we founded Ashira our commitment was to have and retain a blue-chip client in our public infrastructure work. Mona was instrumental in achieving this commitment. She embodies the finest virtues a lawyer can have: intelligence, pragmatism and probity. In the early 2000s when outsourcing, corporatisation and concessions were new and contested, Mona boldly created and defended innovative and successful structures.
I needed someone to urgently look at my position in respect of a high-value European transaction. Ms Monadjem quickly gave me valuable insights into my personal rights and obligations in the complex transaction.
We asked Mona Monadjem to assist on a standardized licensing agreement for the licensing of our software product across multiple African jurisdictions. We can highly recommend Mona as an efficient and amiable working partner.
Mona has been our trusted general legal advisor for many years. She is quick to focus our attention on risks and opportunities in commercial relationships and provide us with solutions to problems we hadn't considered. She is reliable and efficient, and we recommend her highly.
