This year, The Lawyer’s annual ranking of the largest UK law firms by turnover is available as an interactive, digital benchmarking tool. For the first time this will allow you to manipulate each data set against the metrics of your choice.
Hussein Damirji, a native Iraqi who has spent most of his life outside his homeland, has returned to set up his own law firm.
His new office in central Baghdad is in addition to offices in Jordan, New York and London. As well as being a member of the Iraq Bar Council, he is also UK and US-qualified.
Damirji is in a unique position in that he is both a member of the Iraqi Bar Council and has a network of Western business contacts. This gives him an advantage over both local firms, which rely partly on referrals from Western law firms to get business, and international firms, which require Iraqi lawyers to navigate the country’s web of laws.
Damirji was tight-lipped about his clients, but said his main work is corporate, property, litigation and IP.
