Middle East Desk

Ronald Fletcher Baker’s Middle East Desk provides a full service to corporate and individual clients  based in or with interests in the region. 

Our Middle East Desk is experienced in dealing with the requirements of Middle Eastern clients; it is staffed by experienced solicitors and is headed by Yasaman Asaad, a Farsi and Dari speaking solicitor.

Our Middle East Desk solicitors have a wealth of experience in dealing with businesses, property, and investments. 

With offices in the West End, City of London and in Manchester, our solicitors are particularly well placed to assist investor clients in property acquisitions and other investments in the heart of London and in the fast growing Manchester sector. 

Clients include high net worth individuals, single and multiple family offices, and companies; based within the Middle East region and globally. 

Our solicitors work closely with the other international desks within the firm, and also a network of law firms in the Gulf countries, Turkey and Iran in order to provide a seamless service to clients.

With an in depth understanding of Middle Eastern culture, and business mentality, our solicitors are able to provide unparalleled guidance to clients new to the UK as to the way business is done in the UK and how the two cultures differ.

With in depth experience of acting for Middle Eastern clients in both contentious and transactional work, our Middle East desk solicitors provide both the legal and tactical advice that is valued by clients, and also important local knowledge, to keep our clients one step ahead of the competition, regardless of their location.
