International Divorce & Family Law: Middle East & Persian Gulf (including Iran, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Egypt)

This region has a wide range of judicial systems, ranging from pure Sharia courts to wholly secular civil courts. Often the interaction of religious law with civil law as administered in England and Wales leads to particular questions of interpretation. We deal with complex questions between England and a range of Middle Eastern countries and have clients across the region.

We have often advised on a range of issues involving citizens of Palestine, Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Iran and Turkey, including Israel divorceUnited Arab Emirates divorce, and Saudi Arabia divorce.

As specialist international divorce and family solicitors, we advise clients who are either UK-based but originate from the Middle East and Persian Gulf countries, or are living outside of the UK but have connection with England or Wales.

I wanted to say a big thanks to Henry Bookman and his colleagues for all their help and guidance during my divorce - a long a complicated one. The team were all brilliant. I loved the fact that Henry was happy to explore possibilities and search for solutions. I also feel that on occasions he gave hope when things were against me. All told a great coach who was ready with pearls of wisdom when I needed it.

I would strongly recommend this firm. I had the opportunity to discuss my case thoroughly with Mr Bookman. But before the initial consultation, I had a telephone conversation with a legal assistant who took most of the details down, so that my initial consultation was to the point I appreciate the advice given by Mr Bookman and think it a humble approach that the initial consultation is FREE and carried by the most senior member of the firm and not by a junior staff like it happens in other firms.

Aziz Malik. Unbelievably good. Fantastic advice and was able to manage my difficult family law case to a superb outcome. Highly recommended.

I did a consultation with Henry and I highly recommend him. He took the time to understand my situation, checked that he had all the information he needed and once he realized he was not the best person for my case, he recommended another lawyer in another country who could help. Unlike other lawyers I've worked with previously, he was extremely honest, transparent and generous with his time.

The professionalism and speed at which Mr Henry responded to the initial enquiry was remarkable and the advice provided was detailed and clear.
