Overview

The Corporate and Commercial Department at Ijaz Ahmed & Associates is most well known for being a robust team that can provide in-depth analysis of company and commercial law, particularly in situations where other legal advisers have advised on a plain reading of the legal provisions or adopted more routine structures. 

The firm is able to advise in such complex and unique structures due to its knowledge and experience of a wide variety of corporate and commercial transactions across the world (which has increased through the joining of Altaf Qureshi), but also due to its leading litigation department whose research and arguments have enabled new and innovative structures and arrangements.
