Policies, Procedures and Contractual Documentation 
Drafting and vetting service agreements, employment contracts, secondment arrangements and employee handbooks.

HR Issues

Sending out legal notices is often an effective way of resolving employment disputes. Whether the dispute is about salary, bonuses or terminal payments, or concerns former employees breaching non-disclosure, non-competition clauses and the like, a legal notice can often clinch the issues at stake and lead to a fair resolution. 
In addition to the above, the firm represents clients before the courts, tribunals and administrative authorities in the United Arab Emirates, India, United Kingdom, Singapore and other jurisdictions, on claims relating to termination of office, protecting trade secrets and confidential information, preventing unlawful competition and safeguarding of general business interests and rights.
