Join us for a seminar on “Exploring Iran”.


The Law Society is hosting a panel discussion on exploring Iran, which will be followed by a networking lunch, on Friday, 29th September.

Since the lifting of sanctions in 2016, interest in the Iranian market from international business has grown significantly and demand for legal expertise has risen. This seminar will examine some of the opportunities, ongoing challenges and practicalities of doing legal work in Iran in light of these important developments.

In addition to our panel of experts we also will be joined at this event by the President of the Iran Central Bar Association (CBA), Mr Amir Hosseinabadi. The CBA is Iran’s largest bar association.
