Gibson Dunn & Crutcher’s London office is celebrating the release of Iran hostage Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe after spending about six years advising on the case on a pro bono basis.

Zaghari-Ratcliffe had been detained in Iran since 2016, during which time she was tried and convicted twice during this time in Iran of unfounded charges. She was sentenced to five years in prison on unspecified charges relating to national security and receiving a further one-year sentence in 2021.
