Maziar specialises in large-scale investigations and advisory work in a variety of fields, including international sanctions.
Though he works across sectors, Maziar has advised a number of financial institutions in recent years on contentious regulatory and financial crime issues, including investigations and UK Financial Conduct Authority remediation processes, as well as litigation.
He advises a variety of clients across the banking, oil and gas, professional services and manufacturing sectors on dual-use and military-export controls, as well as financial sanctions regimes such as those on Russia, Iran and North Korea.
Maziar is also a specialist in designing and implementing major e-discovery projects. He led the firm’s largest e-discovery exercise as part of a cross-jurisdictional investigation, and helps the firm develop innovative approaches to e-discovery.
Active in our responsible business initiatives, Maziar works closely with Halo, the firm’s LGBT network, and the Stephen Lawrence scholarship programme.
