With all the flair, determination and personality of an entrepreneur, Dr Tahir Akhtar, saw a gap in the market and quickly began filling that niche. In 2002 Dr Tahir decided that the time was ripe to promote business in Dubai.  With a very successful career in the medical sector behind him Dr Tahir immediately took the ‘bull by the horns’ and incorporated Paralegal Services International which is the mother company for the other businesses owned and operated by Dr Tahir including DBA Business Advisors, PRO Serve and, the latest addition to the fold, Adam & Stroud. 

Dr Tahir’s energy and enthusiasm to provide a business solutions service in Dubai and the UAE to incomers and residents alike became the roots of this very strong and healthy company.  Dr Tahir’s personal values of trust, honesty, transparency and loyalty are an inherent part of the DBA Business Advisors’ community.  Only consultants and other staff holding the same values are brought into the company.  This sense of purpose and belonging to the DBA Business Advisors team ensures that teamwork is a valuable asset to DBA Business Advisors.

Having worked to  bring this excellent service to Dubai Dr Tahir is proud to be at the helm of this wonderful company.  He feels his role is to ensure the successful growth of DBA Business Advisors and to ensure that all clients are treated with the respect they deserve.

As mentioned earlier, Dr Tahir’s medical background is impressive and includes the following roles, mainly in the UK.
