Dler Saber

Dler Saber is the Founder and Director of the Dler Law Office. He is a seasoned expert in civil litigation. He dedicated his studies, and he focuses his legal career, on civil cases. Through a series of dramatic court victories on behalf of his many clients, Dler Saber has earned himself a huge amount of respect as a litigator in both Kurdistan and Iraq. Several qualities come together to make Dler Saber an outstanding litigator:

1) he knows the laws; few attorneys in Kurdistan or Iraq know the Articles of the Iraqi legal system better than Dler Saber

2) he is creative; he employs novel ways to combine the Articles and use them together, to strengthen his client’s case, and to weaken his opponent’s case

3) he is absolutely and completely honest; Dler Saber does not play games, he does not compromise, and his deep and fundamental respect for laws and the legal system is unshakable

4) he does not give up; when he takes a case he is profoundly loyal to his client, and he will fight for his client’s interests in a relentless way

Dler Saber is the trusted attorney of record for a large number of international and local companies operating in Kurdistan and Iraq- but he also sets aside time to give back to the community. He is the Head of the Legal Department of the Businessmen Association of Kurdistan, and provides the organization with extensive and ongoing legal advice. He also provides legal counsel to a number of non-government organizations. And he has taken on, and won, countless civil cases on a strictly pro-bono basis, when his clients could not afford to pay legal fees. Dler Saber’s father was a highly respected Judge, and Dler has known since he was a child that he would become a lawyer. Through his success, he has earned the respect of fellow lawyers, judges, clients and opponents. Some lawyers practice law in search of money or prestige. Dler Saber genuinely loves the practice of law.

In 2014, Dler Law Office established a foreign office- a European office located in The Hague, in The Netherlands. We chose to incorporate our European office in the Netherlands because of its central geographical position within Europe, the country’s competitive tax regime and pro-business environment, and the fact that several of our key clients have corporate headquarters there.
