Iran Desk

Ronald Fletcher Baker’s Iran Desk provides advice in relation to all aspects of UK law to Iranian individuals and companies. Our solicitors speak both Farsi and English, and can assist with business activities in the UK. The majority of the economic and financial sanctions against Iran have now been eased following the historic ‘Iran Deal’. The ‘Iran Deal’ was fully implemented on 16 January 2016. This means that Iran is now at last open for business with the wider world.

Iran is the most exciting emerging market of 2016. Major sectors of Iran’s economy are now unlocked for investment, such as oil & gas, banking & finance, precious metals, shipping, automotive, and consumer goods.

The Iran Desk is developing and maintaining contacts with experienced law firms in Tehran so that we are able to offer a seamless service to our clients both in the UK and in Iran.

The team at Ronald Fletcher Baker LLP is led by Rokhsareh Vahid. She assists with a variety of matters pertaining to Iran and Iranians living abroad. Rokhsareh has successfully executed dozens of cases involving bank account closures and bank account restrictions. She assists businesses in relation to their trade with Iran in line with US, EU, and UK sanctions, and she assists with a variety of legal issues within Iran.

Jonathan Roberts is the Senior Partner in the firm and is also a member of the Iran Desk. He has extensive experience in cross border litigation and corporate and commercial transactions with an international element.

Deniz Oguzkanli is a Partner in the firm’s City office and has extensive experience with matters involving UK and international law in relation to real estate and corporate matters.
