Afarin Law Firm has been involved with many mitigation and dispute resolution for clients, mostly from Europe and from China. The work has been challenging but proved successful as they use all the available venues to put offending party back to its position and to help their clients enhance their negotiating powers, hence resulting in satisfactory agreements.
This proves that mitigation remains a good option even in Iran, allowing clients save on court fees and on time.
Afarin’s routine work representing clients in courts for civil and criminal cases are also up in terms of quantity and the value of cases. In Iran, they agree with their Iranian clients and charge them based on the value of the case, but for international clients they normally agree on an hourly basis, retainer or fixed fee, and there are no restrictions on these, as long as a lawyer pays his taxes on fees.
On another note, the impact of new sanctions on Iran has been felt already, the national currency has been depreciated, and the international business has been badly hit. It is the uncertainty over the future which is damaging the most, otherwise the country is very rich in natural resources, and the potential for growth is there, even with sanctions.
One thing is a common global trend though that, problems are more visible across various countries, and the global business is not at its best shape. However, where there is a problem, there ought to be solutions, and this why Afarin remains hopeful and focused.
