Work Department

I advise multinationals and local companies on all aspects of UAE Labour Law and DIFC Employment law issues.

Position

Managing Partner (Middle East) / Head of Employment (Middle East)

Career

My practice covers both contentious and non-contentious employment matters. From a non-contentious perspective, I regularly advise on offer letters, employment, consultancy and secondment contracts; provide advice on immigration and visa requirements; medicals and certification of documents; and frequently review employee handbooks and company policies to ensure they are updated and in accordance with the local legislation. 

I also have extensive experience advising on terminations and the visa cancellation process, and specialise in running complex disciplinary procedures from commencement through to completion.
