.Iraq Law Alliance, PLLC (‘ILA’) is a law firm which represents national and multinational companies. We advise on all legal matters related to corporate and reconstruction activities in Iraq. Our practice spans a broad spectrum and includes general corporate and commercial, contract, projects and finance construction, regulatory, licensing, labor, intellectual property, and tax issues.
ILA, through its attorneys and consultants, maintains privileged relationships with prominent international law firms around the world without any formal relationship with any of them.
ILA seeks to constantly solidify these relationships by participating in international seminars and forums on Iraq, and by seeking to periodically offer its members training in international law firms. Further, ILA has, among its members, lawyers who have experience working with international law firms and in the Middle East, including Iraq.
ILA maintains contacts, and cooperates with, numerous governmental and non-governmental organizations involved in the reconstruction of Iraq, and the development and growth of the legal infrastructure in Iraq.
