Our Employment lawyers have deep experience covering corporate support, due diligence, compliance, and litigation. We provide advice to multinational and regional companies on policies, procedures and contractual documentation for all levels of staff including service agreements, employment contracts, and secondment arrangements.

Our relationships with regulators across the region mean we are kept afresh of new legal developments when it comes to the rights of employers and employees, covering both onshore and offshore jurisdictions. We have built a strong reputation advising multinational clients on their HR policies and procedures in the region, providing not only an application of the law, but also an appreciation of local cultural considerations, providing integrated solutions to their people strategy and planning.

Our priority is to mitigate the risk of employment disputes for our clients. However, when dispute proceedings are unavoidable, our experienced lawyers have the rights of audience to defend you before all relevant labour courts and government authorities. We have successfully represented both employers and employees in a significant number of employment disputes, which in many cases related to non-conventional issues such as hypo tax and claims related to stocks and stock options. Whatever your issue, we can help you protect your interests.
