Hussein Damirji

Of Counsel

With more than three decades of international law experience and cross-border and cross-cultural problem solving, Hussein Damirji delivers unique knowledge of the MENA region to business and individual clients all over the world.

Hussein is a trusted advisor to Boards and C-Suite level executives, major corporations, prominent families, OHNW individuals, family offices and governmental entities in matters that range from food security, regulatory issues to local and cross-border dispute resolution sanctions and litigation.

Notably, Hussein has partnered with some of the most pre-eminent international firms in Washington, DC, London and the MENA region. Given the 2004 changes in Iraq, Hussein has worked with some of the world's largest multinationals in Iraq while also positioning relatively unknown law firms in the MENA region under very competitive market conditions. In fact, one firm was nominated for a best pro bono practice award.

Having experienced the Iraqi diaspora in Beirut and London first-hand, Hussein delivers a proven ability to navigate international matters with legal, business and social fluency and sensitivity – a benefit to those he serves.
