After partial lifting of sanctions in January 2016 Iran’s capital Tehran has been a frequent destination for business travellers from all over the world. Thanks to its prominent geographical situation between Europe and East Asia, its rich natural resources and the highly skilled work force Iran is considered to be one of the next emerging markets having impact on the global economy. Iran’s return to the global trade community will boost international trade with and investment in the country. Given the recent developments, Tehran seems to be the adequate place to host the AIJA seminar “Negotiating and Drafting International Contracts”.

The seminar is designed to give practical guidance in managing international commercial contracts and will, among others, deal with best practice rules for the conduct of negotiations, do’s and don’ts and typical clauses including dispute resolution mechanisms. The seminar will be held by highly qualified lawyers with a strong international background. It is directed to lawyers as well as in-house counsels and contract executives of international companies. We therefore cordially invite you to join us in Tehran. It will be the perfect place to get to know our fellow lawyers from Iran and vice versa and to build up a network for future upcoming business opportunities.
