U.S. Law Firm Enters post-war IraqDiaz Reus & Targ has opened law offices in Iraq, further expanding our presence in the Middle East and reinforcing our long term commitment to the region.

FIRST Major International U.S. Law Firm to Enter Post-war Iraq

As the first major international U.S. law firm to enter post-war Iraq, our new offices provide us with a significant presence in this increasingly important emerging market. This is the natural and logical next step for our firm, which already has a  presence in the Dubai International Financial Centre. These new offices will enable the firm to further provide full service support to its clients and their business needs in the Middle East region.

Our Miami-based firm has established a strategic alliance with Newton & Partners, LLC, an emerging markets law firm that will serve as Diaz Reus’s affiliate in Iraq. Halim Gebeili, senior partner of this growing Mideast firm which has just started operations in Libya and Cairo, will be of counsel to Diaz Reus and will advise foreign companies regarding their investment strategy and associated corporate and regulatory aspects while operating in the greater Iraq and the Kurdistan area.

As a key player in Iraq’s legal market, Diaz Reus will focus on project finance, direct investment, mergers and acquisitions, corporate and business transactions, regulatory compliance and international arbitration. The Middle East is becoming increasingly important to our worldwide client base, which ranges from North and South America to greater Asia, China, India, and Europe. It’s clear that emerging markets will be driving global economic growth for the next decade, and Diaz Reus is well positioned with its in-depth local understanding, coupled with market-leading  international expertise, to assist in accessing these markets.
