Fichte & Co is recommended by the Legal 500 as a TOP TIER FIRM for Iran. The Iran Desk, based in its Dubai office, brings together a dedicated team of specialist lawyers from across the firm’s regional network to advise clients starting a business in Iran with both inbound and outbound interests in this newly opened-up country.
This network approach is particularly important given the lifting of the sanctions agreed in 2015 which has presented an opportunity for foreign investors starting a business in Iran and enter the Iranian market and for Iranian companies to merge to the global trades.
In this rapidly growing climate, Fichte & Co is utilising its experts to advise clients on recent updates to the sanctions regime, business developments, and local and regional laws and regulations while starting a business in Iran. We will walk the client through every step from introductions to the right Iranian entity, attend meetings with the client, advise the client on the right structure based on the client’s needs and the industry involved, branch office locations, to negotiate deals with counterparties and to finalize the transaction. We subsequently will familiarize the client with the Iranians laws such as the labour law, taxation, the company law, the commercial code and the Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Act (FIPPA).
On the other side, we have the expertise and experience to offer the same services to our Iranian clients, wishing to establish businesses abroad or to establish a partnership with foreign entities. This unique type of legal and business service includes familiarizing Iranian clients with the corresponding foreign laws, and how that can affect the business transactions, assisting them to attend meetings, successfully conducting negotiations and to help achieve their final goals in establishing fruitful business transactions with foreign entities.

- Sanctions and International Compliance
