Akrivis Law Group, PLLC co-hosted a successful seminar in Abu Dhabi on February 10, 2015 with the Dubai-based Al Tamimi & Co. law firm titled Economic Sanctions on Iran and Anti-Corruption Regulations / US and UAE Perspectives. The event, hosted at the landmark Jumeirah Hotel at Etihad Towers, was led by Akrivis Managing Partner Farhad Alavi and Al Tamimi Financial Crime Practice Partner Ibtissam Lassoued. Attendees included high-ranking ministry personnel, officials from major sovereign wealth funds (SWFs) and major international and UAE businesses in industries such as banking, engineering, and oil & gas.
“Our decision to host this event in Abu Dhabi was driven by the rapidly increasing interest in these very salient topics not just in Dubai but throughout the UAE and the broader Persian Gulf region.” stated Farhad Alavi. This year’s event built on a similar seminar, also co-hosted with Al Tamimi, which was held at the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) Ritz-Carlton Hotel last year.
