The recent global technological force that has powerfully changed the way people interact, has evidently found its way to the Iranian market and society. From a legal point of view, information and telecommunication technologies have created complex and multifaceted landscapes for both public and private actors. IT companies operating in developing economies like Iran might experience even more cumbersome legal challenges because of the regulatory ambiguities and uncertainties intrinsic to such economies. Therefore, providing legal support to IT companies in such environments requires deep knowledge and extensive experience of the regulatory framework, practice of relevant authorities as well as dynamics of the market. This is exactly where Elite Pars stands out among countless other law firms as we have developed innovative approaches to protect our clients in telecom and IT sector.
