About Us

Our Story

In 1993, Mr. Sam Bayat set up a boutique law practice in Dubai to promote Canada as a destination of choice for investment and/or migration. The firm, then known as “Canadian Legal Services”, was the first Canadian law firm in the GCC.

Today, Bayat Legal Services has an international presence, working with a vast network of legal professionals and trade consultants. Our core expertise is corporate migration, economic citizenship, investments, and tax planning.

Our founder, who migrated from the Middle East to Canada in the early 70s, is a Quebec (Canada) licensed attorney, a published author, and a lecturer experienced in international law. Mr. Bayat was the former president of the Canadian bar association’s international section in Quebec.

Our Mission

Bayat Legal Services is committed to inferring the needs of high-net-worth individuals and providing insightful guidance tailored to their demands. Citizenship and Residency laws are constantly evolving, which is precisely why you need a legal professional to oversee the entire application process.

The Firm draws upon its extensive network of lawyers, investment bankers, accountants and international business consultants to provide each client with experienced professionals and legal expertise. We strive to guide our clients towards the right decision and exceed expectations by sustaining long-lasting relationships.

Our Values

We believe in equal opportunities and take immense pride in our multi-lingual staff from diverse backgrounds. We also attach importance to protecting our environment and take initiatives to that end, such as recycling and going paperless.

We are aware of the extent to which deciding to migrate can greatly alter one’s life. By virtue of having been officially mandated by the various governments we work with, clients can be assured that they are in safe and credible hands. Furthermore, we take it upon ourselves to propose solutions that are in the clients’ best interest.
