Doing business in Iran: pathfinders’ insights

Past event
12 December 2017, 10:00 - 14:00 UTC +03:00

Following the lifting of sanctions against Iran, the country is re-entering the world market. The opportunities for doing business successfully in Iran are now greater than ever. In order to realise and maximise Iran’s tremendous potential, Russian companies need to anticipate, plan for and mitigate associated risks. We are aware that the political and legal interactions within Iran may provide a largely unique backdrop to your governance considerations and investment choices.

CMS is the first international law firm to provide support via a dedicated office and team of lawyers in the Iranian capital, Tehran, and is already one of the largest legal services providers in the country.

Therefore, we’re thrilled to announce that CMS partnering with leading legal media pravo.ru are holding a conference “Doing business in Iran: pathfinders’ insights” on 12 December 2017, 10.00 – 14.00, which will take place at Presnenskaya Naberezhnaya, 10, block C, 56 floor to share experience and cover the following issues:

  • A look into the past – Russian-Iranian relationships
  • Overview of modern Iranian economy
  • Legal background for doing business in Iran
  • Theory in practice – pathfinders’ insights

Alexander Sadovnikov, former Russian ambassador to Iran in 2005 - 2011, has confirmed his participation.

Participation for business representatives is free of charge. Registration is required. To register for the event please contact Tatyana Brezhneva.
