Ghanemi earned his bachelor's degree in business law in 2012 and a master's degree in accounting, control, and auditing in 2015 from the Algerian Higher School of Business (ESAA).

In 2018, he established Legal Doctrine, a legaltech startup that aggregates and publishes legislation, regulations, and court rulings from Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Senegal, Côte d'Ivoire, and Cameroon. The platform, leveraging artificial intelligence, offers a comprehensive and accessible repository for legal professionals, including lawyers, students, and businesses, providing them with in-depth analysis of legislative and regulatory texts for current and relevant information.

As arguably the first legaltech in Algeria, Legal Doctrine boasts a user base exceeding 4,000 customers who utilize its legal search engine to enhance efficiency and save time in their research endeavors. The company's contributions to the field have earned it the title of "Best African Legaltech Startup" twice, first in 2018 in Zurich and again in 2019 in Tunis.

Beyond Legal Doctrine, Walid Ghanemi also founded Algiers Arbitration Day, an annual event that convenes international arbitration practitioners to delve into the latest developments, emerging trends, and critical issues in the arbitration landscape across Algeria, Africa, and the Middle East and North Africa region.

He is also the President and CEO of the Algiers Business Law Institute. He entered the professional world in 2007 at CMS Francis Lefebvre Avocats, where he worked as a lawyer. Over the years, he transitioned to roles such as financier at Alstom Group in 2012 and tax specialist at KPMG Algeria in the subsequent year. From 2015 until the inception of Legal Doctrine, he served as an associate senior financial and tax auditor at PwC.
