    • Internationalized Cases

      In almost every country in the world, there are different rules for nationals and non-nationals. this differentiation depends on the nature and sources of any particular legal system so it naormally can not be categorized. Any dispute that include a non-national element could result in a internationalized dispute which may or may not requires to apply a foreign law. the non-national element can be anything like nationality of one party or a contract concluded in another country or even pariy’s agreement about application of foreign law.

      In Iran legal system, rules that govern on internationalized cases vary upon foreign element; 1- if applicant is not an Iran national, 2- if defendant is not Iran national, 3- if dispute refer to the court or arbitration, 4- if contract has been concluded in foreign country, and etc. in each and every case, depend on the type of foreign element, rules that govern the case might change. these rules include procedural rules and merit rules. for example

      1- In a matrimonial dispute, if one of the parties is an Iran national, both procedural and merit rules vary depend on whether the spouse is Iran national or the wife.

      2- In a non-contractuual liability, there is not any explicit rules about proper law in Iran legal system so it depends on every factor that involves in the case.

      3- In a multilateral contract in which one of the parties is an Iran national, any judgement or sentence or award or dictum issued from a foreign authority might not be applicable in Iran.

      As it is clear, every step of an internationalized case must be choosen carefully otherwise, the destination of the dispute is totally unclear and uncertain. of course, the whole dispute can be avoided via consultation about first steps of any situation which engage a foreign elements. so if you have any potential or on going dispute involving an Iranian element such as a contract or a marriage or a divorce, or if you want to stablish a participation with an Iranian national, ask your questions and get your answer from our exerpts.

    • Borders of Language

      Each and every legislative body of a government, even those related to supranational activities, adopt their Acts and Regulations in national language. Farsi or Persian is Iran national language. Legislative Branch (Parlimant), Board of Ministers, Central Bank, and all other law-making bodies in Iran, work and communicate and correspond by this language. except from some major codes such as Constitutional Code or Civil Code, there is not any reliable translation of Iran laws and regulations. In some cases, even international treaties (specially bilaterla treaties) does not have an official translation.

      Our group of lawyers, due to their passion about other cultures and through years of hard work, succeded to learn different languages and widen their knowledge about other legal systems such as French, Arabic, and Chinese. At this starting point, the primary language to provide information is English but consultation can be held in French and Arabic too. french and chinese version of this website will be added shortly.
