Seminar: Doing Business in Iraq

The Middle East Association, in partnership with Eversheds LLP, is holding a seminar in London entitled “Doing Business In Iraq: Establishing A Presence And Staying Within The Law”. This seminar will take place on Tuesday 26th June, from 16:30 until 18:30.

Iraq’s recent history has been dominated by conflicts and economic sanctions. But the country is on the rise once more and there are many investment opportunities available. How can you make the most of these opportunities by avoiding major pitfalls, working within local laws and understanding the business culture?

This free seminar will give you the information and ideas you need. Aimed at in-house lawyers, directors, business advisers and government officials, this is your chance to get advice direct from our experts on the ground.

Our speaker line-up comprises:

  • Michael Hodges, Chairman, Middle East Association and Business Development Director MENA Region, HSBC (Chair)
  • John Kemkers, Partner, Eversheds
  • Tawfiq Tabaa, Partner, Sanad Law Group in Association with Eversheds
  • William Wakeham, CEO, AAIB Insurance Brokers

The seminar will cover the crucial legal areas in relation to doing business in Iraq. You will also take part in a Q&A session to get the answers you need and network with participants who share your interest in business in Iraq.

The areas we will cover include:

  • foreign investment
  • company registration
