I am Quebec (Canada) licensed attorney with background in international law and is specialized in corporate migration. I have over twenty years experience in business immigration and citizenship consultancy.
I was the former president and vice president of Canadian Bar, International Section in Quebec. I had lectured in the International law at the Concordia University in Montreal and the senior resident lawyer of the law firm, Bayat Legal Services (BLS) in Dubai.
As the pace of immigration for Canada out of the Middle East stepped up, I set up in 1993 a small law practice in Dubai. Today BLS an international law firm, working with a network of law firms, legal professionals and trade consultants, around the world.
The group has specialists working on sanction, corporate/commercial, investment/banking, and arbitration laws. But the group main focus continues to be on business migration, residency and economic citizenship laws.
I had published two books on Canadian immigration law in 2000 (All you need to know about moving to Canada and in 2003 (Canada after September 11, immigration and settlement).
I also written two books on immigrants’ lives in Canada Canada’s immigrants, heroes and countrymen (Vol. I and II). And written several chapters in a new book published in collaboration with International Bar, corporate business immigration review, describing several countries business immigration laws.
