Our Iraq Offices are in the unique position of providing local expertise in Iraq while drawing from the full resources and expertise of the entire Al Tamimi & Company team of over 290 lawyers. Consequently, the firm acts for a variety of clients, including multinational corporations, Iraqi Government contractors, and international law firms. We are fully licensed to operate in Iraq without any associations. We currently have fully operational offices in Baghdad (2005) and Erbil (2013), with presence in Basra as of 2013.

As one of only a handful of firms with a physical presence in Iraq, we are host to highly qualified lawyers who work and live in Baghdad and Erbill who amongst them have more than 25 years of practice experience in Iraq, including audiences before court.

The strength of our offering often sees us appointed as local counsel on the country’s most complex and significant matters, including advising Iraqi governmental departments and courts, which helps to ensure that we stay informed of changes in the law, as well as local practice and procedure.

Our fully integrated approach allows us to work seamlessly across all offices in our network and we routinely handle many of the largest cross border transactions that Iraq has seen. We are confident that regardless of the size or complexity of a matter, we have the resource, expertise and cultural understanding to guide our clients with their legal needs in Iraq.
