Middle East Team
We have assisted Middle Eastern companies keen to do business in the UK and English and European companies wanting to invest in the Middle East. That advice has included advising major European oil and gas companies on their joint ventures with the National Iranian Oil Company; advising national shipping companies on their international disputes including sale of goods contracts and charterparties and acting for an investment house on a £9m banking dispute and a £7m telecoms dispute.
We also provide specialist wealth management advice for Middle Eastern individuals and their families investing in the UK. This includes advice relating to UK property (particularly investment in farms, estates and equestrian property) Agricultural & Equestrian Property, trading and taxation issues, UK probate issues and co-ordinating advice for the family on succession structures across various jurisdictions.
