Legal Services and Areas of Practice

Globalization has opened the doors of Iran, just like many other developing countries, to Entrepreneurs and Investors from around the developed world. Economic reforms and state downsizing in Iran have encouraged businessmen to venture out and explore new avenues outside Iran and welcome foreign investors and entrepreneurs in order to reach the goal of an open market economy. Iranian interest in international trade has grown exponentially over the last few years. Iranians are now actively seeking and pursuing partnerships, joint ventures and license agreements with foreign companies in order to have access to new technology and know-how and sell better their products.
Our firm specializes in dealing with the complexities and legalities involved in international trade concerning the sale of technology, import/export and proper advice regarding legal agreements, tax implications and the most beneficial way to engage in international trade, taking into account the best interest of the foreign investor and the Iranian company.
