Award winning law firm Blackstone launches Iran Desk
Blackstone Solicitors have announced a further expansion of their services with the launch of an Iran Desk. Earlier this year, the Hale-based award-winning law firm announced the opening of a Mayfair office in London to service their London and International clients. This recent announcement of an Iran Desk will undoubtedly allow for further expansion.
Set up in 201O by Emma Nawaz, the firm specialises in commercial litigation, property law for commercial and residential clients, corporate legal services, and family law and wills and probate. Over the last six years, Blackstone has enjoyed a rapid expansion achieving a string of accolades along the way. Last year the firm announced a turnover of just over £1million – an increase of 34%.
In 2014/15 the firm achieved national and international recognition when they took on and won cases against high street banks over accusations of racial discrimination concerning British citizens with Iranian backgrounds or Iranians living in the UK. This has prompted the decision to set up an Iran Desk. The Iran Desk is headed by Rokhsareh Vahid who was born in Iran and is a Farsi speaker. Blackstone can assist anyone interested in moving to or working in the UK as well as representation in any legal issues in these areas.
Commenting on this recent announcement Emma Nawaz, Managing Director, said, “We have an increasing number of Iranian clients and undoubtedly this decision to set up a specific Iran desk will allow us to provide invaluable advice and support in relation to business ventures in the UK.”
Rokhsareh Vahid added, “Blackstone Solicitors is well-regarded for vigorously representing the Iranian community. I practised law similarly in the United States and I am delighted to join such a professional and passionate team of like-minded brilliant lawyers. I am thrilled to head up the Iran Desk and to further develop the Iranian business. We aim to become the trusted legal advocates for all Iranians.”
