Sam Baring

Deputy Head of MENA

My area of expertise

I have particular expertise in advising law firms, blue-chip corporations, and investment banks with matters in Iran, Iraq, Libya, Oman, and Afghanistan. Before Risk Advisory, I worked as an interpreter for Afghan and Iranian refugees in Serbia, having completed a year of intensive Farsi language training in Mashhad, Iran.

Why I love what I do

I enjoy gathering actionable high-grade human source intelligence from my network in the MENA region and delivering it to our clients, so they can make informed decisions and get ahead of the competition.

What sets Risk Advisory apart

We can access and supply human intelligence that others cannot – from the MENA region and around the world.


Intelligence delivered ingeniously

Helping key decision makers, make the right commercial decisions
