Swiss law firm Python & Peter has launched its office in Tehran, as the country opens for business in the aftermath of the lifting of economic sanctions. The firm was founded in Geneva by four partners in 1981 and has grown to become one of the major law firms in Switzerland with offices in Lausanne, Bern, Sion and Zug, The Global Legal Post reported. In addition, it has offices in Brussels and Tokyo. Specializing in business law and international arbitration, it has around 60 lawyers across its offices. In February, Germany’s CMS was the first international law firm to open an office in Tehran since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. In a further sign of the growing international interest in setting up business in Iran, a team from the Swiss Chambers’ Arbitration Institution visited Tehran last week, offering arbitration services in any potential future disputes between Iranian and foreign companies.
