Iran is quickly becoming one of the fastest growing nations on the startup scene. However, the Iranian ecosystem faces several challenges. From the legal point of view, due to lack of a sufficiently formed legal and regulatory structure for startups, a number of loopholes in the regulations dealing with the legal needs of startups, such as Shareholder Rights, Vesting and Stock Options, NDA, etc. shall be taken into consideration.

Such a situation requires a substantial attention by startups in ascertaining their legal needs and also in the choice of the lawyers having the standard legal expertise in this matter.

Aras-Pars’ team has had the opportunity to accompany successful examples of the Iranian startups, an experience making part of the firm’s added value.
