KALANTAR BUSINESS LAW GROUP is a newly launched boutique law firm with market-leading practices, a global perspective, and strong roots in the Middle East and the US. We cut through talk, theory and reams of paper to deliver pragmatic, actionable advice that is attuned to business exigencies and commercial strategy. With offices in Dubai and New York, we bring familiarity with both emerging and developed markets.We are commercially savvy lawyers with many years of in-house and private practice experience in multiple jurisdictions, including business hubs such as New York, London and Dubai. We founded the firm so that companies, investors and entrepreneurs can benefit from advice that is commercially sensible as well as legally astute, and with cost-effective fee arrangements that do away with the traditional ‘billable hour’. Leveraging on our experience and competencies in the USA, we also serve as a resource for US and international investment initiatives inbound to the Middle East, Africa and other emerging markets, and advise on deals originated in the Middle East and Africa that are outbound to the US. Our goal is to be the firm of choice for clients with respect to their most challenging legal issues and most significant business transactions.
