  • It's a positive development and there are great opportunities ahead for a firm like Eversheds. But I'm not sure what good two lawyers from Baghdad will be? The law in Kurdistan is somewhat different than federal Iraq in devolved matters (with a growing body of local laws and regs since 1991) so there will be lots to catch up on, and local businessmen prefer to deal with lawyers who from the region (Baghdad does not count as being local). Eversheds will soon find that they will need to recruit Kurdish lawyers, preferably dual qualified, who have international experience if they are to flourish in the Kurdish marketplace.
