Amir is a truly international lawyer specialised in advising globally acting financial as well as strategic investors on acquisitions, disposals and co-investments across a number of sectors (eg chemicals, automotive and technology) and jurisdictions.
Amir also regularly advises both German and international clients on corporate governance and compliance matters. His main areas of expertise include advising on compliance strategies and organisations as well as the design and implementation of compliance management systems.
Amir's clients also include management and supervisory bodies, which he advises predominantly in special (insolvency-related) crisis situations.
For some years now, Amir's particular country focus has been on Iran and Switzerland. He is a core member of, and one of the driving forces behind, our Iran group. Amir is regarded as a proven and highly respected expert in all areas relevant to Iran investments (eg investment protection, sanctions compliance and joint ventures). He is regularly asked to speak at conferences and to contribute to various publication projects.
In 2016 for a period of twelve months, Amir was seconded to our New York office where he had been able to also closely work with our global sanctions team and thus build up a great expertise in this area.
